The majority of this collage was made in 2003, while I was in graduate school. My thesis project explored how interactive layouts and content-based design could create specific and unique reading experiences in digital comics. My pencil drawing was made using the blind contour technique, where I looked at what I was drawing, but not the paper I was drawing on. I later looked at the paper while rendering the image in ink. The image was then scanned into the computer and imported into Flash, where I designed and programmed the user interface and interactivity. Another version of this image includes my then girlfriend, sitting on the futon. If I remember correctly, the user’s interaction would reveal her, as well as some text. What it said, I do not remember.
I drew the horse for my 2009 comic Super Duper Ham: Day One. I added paint and ink to the first image and collaged the second to it in 2011. Color was added in 2015.
