I have some ideas for a couple potential comics or graphic novels I’d like to make, so I was thinking I need more practice in comic-style art. In order to do this, I decided to make illustrations of a book I’m reading. I’ll basically be making one little comic for every one or two chapters. I’ll decide this based on the content of each chapter. The book I’m currently reading is Geekerella by Ashley Poston.
Geekerella is a modern take on the fairy tale Cinderella. It’s about a geeky blogger, Danielle, who blogs about a classic show called Starfield. I think it’s basically the equivalent of Star Trek, with maybe a mix of Star Wars. Anyway, Danielle finds out who got the lead role for the upcoming reboot of Starfield, and she is NOT happy, so she blogs about it. Darien, the actor that got the role, is secretly a big geek too, and he discovers Danielle’s blog shortly after he is announced as the lead role. What will happen? How will they meet? SO EXCITING!
Here is my first comic for Geekerella:
In this scene, Danielle brought some leftover steak bites to the next door neighbor’s dog, in order to keep the dog quiet, because her evil stepmother was getting annoyed by the barking and ordered her to do something about it.
I may do more than one comic per chapter, if I get inspired by more than one scene. For chapter one, I’m pretty sure there will be two comics. I’ll try to upload two new comics each week, so keep checking back!
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
