Five Color Comics

So my local com­ic shop, House of Secrets (Hi Paul, Erik and Amy!) also occa­sion­al­ly pub­lish­es spe­cial projects of their own, under the name Art of Fic­tion. One of them is a title they call Five Col­or Comics. The inter­est­ing thing about it is that they have each pan­el of the sto­ries drawn by a dif­fer­ent artist. Bit of an exer­cise in herd­ing cats for them some­times, I’m sure, but the results are interesting.

I con­tributed to vol­ume one, and they recent­ly pub­lished vol­ume two. Which I was also invit­ed to con­tribute to. You can see my pan­el con­tri­bu­tion here, sans cap­tions. No “Pho­to­shop­pery” going on; it was done the old-school way, direct­ly on paper with pen, ink and col­ored pen­cils. In con­text with the oth­er pan­els, it’s inter­est­ing to see how there still man­ages to be a cer­tain over­all cohe­sive­ness to the sto­ry, despite the fact we all have such dif­fer­ent styles.
