ah–the daily grind of a cooperative house in a zombie filled future….
i probably should have posted this first, but here are the members of the weener coop & other creatures of interest.
the character “hal” is the invisible man. he does have speaking parts in the comic. whenever you see a speech bubble attached to no one…that’s hal!
i do hope i one day (soon) return to this comic….
here is the last finished page of weener coop
yes, i left it in a cliffhanger….
one of these days i am sure to finish.
so here is where i discovered the ink brush method of shading. i was going to uw art school at the time & had an “aha!” moment with ink brush painting as opposed to scribbling in the dark bits.
also, for some reason, i put panels in.
the dialogue does not seem to be very linear, but with perseverance, you might be able to make sense of it.
so i was apparently working through some cooperative living angst here…this was written while being active in a cooperative house of over 30 people. i moved in there when i had two kids. my third child was actually born there.
i have some love/hate feelings i’m still working through.
what’s real fun is listening to predominantly white people (mostly university students)–especially men–debate about diversity.
one of the best parts about living in a cooperative house–house meetings!! just be sure to bring alcohol.
my stars & ribbons–there is a lot of cursing in this comic.
this page might mark my moving on from grievances with one particular housemate to grievances with that entire culture of some intentional communities.
keep in mind, i was nearly kicked out of this coop for my attitude & lack of censoring.
i’m not sure i learned my lesson.
so i lived in this coop in madison, & there was a chick there who i swear was stalking me. every time i left the room, she would take my chair…. it was kinda funny until one time i left the room & she took my ex-husband.
