Progress on Popo. People are making fun of his name, but it’s not French for poop, it’s short for Limpopo. Like “the great gray-green greasy Limpopo River” from Kipling’s The Elephant’s Child, my favorite of the Just So Stories.
Also, “poop”! Haha!

More Popo promos! Here’s an 11x17 poster I’m considering making for TCAF (and after). More 3-color Riso printing!
[EDIT: Prints ordered! It will be 10x16, so it can fold down to 8x5, the size of the comic when it’s done!]
Introducing Popo the Hippo! Popo is enthusiastic, but kind of oblivious. He is in danger every step of his journey, but he never once realizes his luck. Y’know, for kids!
This here is a draft of the front cover for the wordless comic I’m making to debut at TCAF this May. It will be a 3-color Riso cover on off-white stock, with 2-color (green and black) Riso interiors. The book will be 8”x5”, 32 pages, and pretty silly.
I’ll keep posting sketches and sample pages as I finish things up in the next couple weeks. Keep it comics!
I’m testing out a two-color palette option. The book will be printed on a Riso, so I may as well play!
Pencilling spreads. Wiiiiiiide format.
More practice drawings for my TCAF book.
