Working on self-created books can be a long, lonely process, and involves putting in hundreds of hours of work before every seeing a paycheck, or even knowing if the project will be good enough to warrant a paycheck. But I know mine is. My graphic novel, Lampblack, is my current passion project, and I need YOUR help to make it!
What is Lampblack?
It's an approximately 200+ page graphic novel about a young woman named Penny Fuligin who is trying to navigate the newness of adulthood and ends up becoming the unwilling host to a snarky symbiote. He adds pressure to the already stifling voices of doubt and grief in her head, but he also offers the key to the mystery of her brother's death. Will they learn to work together to uncover the mystery of their connection, or will Penny be too overwhelmed by self-doubt and fear to find the truth?
This slice-of-life superhero comic offers some action and superhero fun (my gosh am I looking forward to drawing those scenes!!), but its strength comes from being an allegory about becoming an adult. It was inspired by my own anxieties post-college, and I want to distill what I learned from that period of my life into a story that teens and young adults can read to perhaps gain a little knowledge and encouragement.
There will be laughs, too. I think Joss Whedon summed it up best when he said, "Make it dark, make it grim, make it tough, but then, for the love of God, tell a joke."
And as always, make every day an awesome one.
You can have a good day, or you can have a bad day, but you are in charge of what you do with it. Make every day awesome by creating, showing kindness to others, and being grateful for the littlest things. I hope my content can add a little happiness to it!
