Hey all...I'm about to embark on an experiment. This little comic, called HAIRPIN!, is not going to appear in a printed format. Instead, it will only be drawn. The idea here is that, even though the gag will remain the same, each book will end up looking different from the other. For me, these books are the equivalent of little paintings or songs played in concert that are never recorded (which means that they are fluid and open to experimentation...which means, ultimately the the gag itself will be open to change. It also means that they might go from drawings to actual paintings, collages, or mixed media. Who knows?!).
I'm doing this because I am curious to see how the ideas and images evolve. It also seems like a fun project. So, we'll see how successful it goes...or if I get sick of it.
