Peehole #10: Voids!

With Zinefest right around the corner, I have a brand new minicomic ready! Peehole #10, Voids, will be first available this Saturday at my table at Chicago Zinefest. It is actually a set of two minicomics (very mini indeed, at 2.5" wide by 2" tall) made up of post-it note drawings from work. These are different than the post it note drawings from Peehole #1, as the folks at work knew of my activities and actively encouraged me to make them.

See, when an old file was to be sent to the archives and replaced with a new file, both files were sent to the secretary, with a post-it note on the old file saying "void", so that she would know to send it to the inactive section. I got bored and drew little pictures on mine. Here are two examples:


When I left that job, she scanned the ones she saved and sent me the files. There were about 60 I was able to clean up enough to be recognizable. Since I could not fit all of these into one tiny minicomic, I made two, which I'll have available as a set. The covers look like so:

Nice and spartan, just like my other work based drawings. This will probably be the last of my post-it-notes-from-work comics, because my current job is way too busy to give me time to doodle anything worthwhile.
