Hi everyone! My mini-comic, CiVediamo, just won a Xeric Grant! The Xeric Foundation has been awarding grants for up-and-coming cartoonists to self-publish their work since 1992. They are now changing their focus, so this was the last ever round of self-publishing grants!
“CiVediamo" is an Italian goodbye. Literally, it means "We’ll see each other." CiVediamothe mini-comic is a wordless story of love, loss and moving on. The comic uses overlapping vellum pages to tell the story, and vellum is a pain to print in a copier, so I’m particularly glad to have support in publishing this comic. I’ve been working with my friend Charles at Eberhardt Press on the printing, and it should be done by the end of July.
Here’s an example of the vellum paper:
