Nineteen Eighty Five

If you've noticed by now, there's a new image on the left over there. That's the result of about 5 months of work, the first volume of Nineteen Eighty Five is finished and printed. I had the idea a few years ago to recount my days of writing on walls in a graphic novel form, and finally got around to putting it on paper last winter.

Self publishing has gotten a lot easier, and with online services like Lulu, the results can be near professional press quality. Usually a sign of shoddy printing is the consistency of the black ink on the page, and they use a method that makes the printing as consistent as you'd get from an offset press.

This is looking to be a series of 40 page books, that'll probably take me into 'Nineteen Eighty Six', 'Nineteen Eighty Seven', etc. I had so much fun putting together Vol. 1, that, Vol. 2 is now in the works.
