Creative Collaboration. Enjoy.
These are cool. Sort of the vibe I have to my own work at times. Any plans for these beautiful gems? What led you to this series? Just wondered. Of course, the girls can speak for themselves.
Last year, I received the gift of 52 haikus from my lovely wife, Skywalker, for my 52nd birthday. Since there are also 52 weeks in a year I thought it would perhaps be a good idea to make a weekly mini-comic and (to paraphrase Dave Sim) draw cute girls in my best “photo-primitive” style reciting the wonderful haikus she had given me. I then posted three single panels from these comics each week on my blog.
However, once my ‘Old 52″ mini-comic project was complete, I received a gift of yet more haikus and was inspired to draw this new “52 GIRLS” pin-up series. I felt my wife’s writing lost something in translation in my earlier mini-comics due to the fact they were delivered one line at a time and panel by panel with a day’s wait in between. Therefore, I decided a single pencil drawing with a complete haiku would perhaps be a better showcase for both of us.
I’d like to make a calendar with the “GIRLS” at some point but it remains to be seen if I actually do or not.
What a great project. Nice how it grew so organically.
