Greetings, Evildoers.

Well hey there! I'm Jen Silverman, I'm a comic art major at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and I like making stuff. Pretty stuff. Because really, who doesn't like stuff?
This is a quick little comic summarizing my day week month semester year.  Here’s hoping for a much more pleasant 2014.

Hey guys, I’m back, and I started a new book!  This is the first out of several recipes in an illustrated step-by-step cookbook I’ve been working on for the last few weeks.  It’s got some bomb-ass baking recipes and my own practical tips on avoiding kitchen disasters (in other words, the stupid things I’ve done to destroy my own kitchen in the past).  If you ask nicely I might post another recipe.  Just sayin’.

this is an accordion book I made. It’s 60 inches long when fully opened. Its the abstracted story of two children looking for each other, wandering through a landscape created from photos of the 1930s and 40s until they finally find one another.

The book is made out of book board and several different types of paper. The whole book is held closed with cameo clasps and paper straps. The book pages are 3.5 inches high; the mounting block is 5.5 x 7 inches.

Mandie is being awesome again.

This is a true story about the mystery surrounding the deaths of nine hikers in 1959 Russia.  There are plenty of theories out there, but to this day the mystery remains unsolved.  It’s been my favorite spooky story for a while, so making a zine about it seemed like a good way to share it with the world.

The first image here is a page from Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s Batman: Year One. The other four are my self-directed final project for my experimental comics class.  I thought it’d be fun to take a page from such an iconic book and, without changing the dialogue or basic thrust of the action, redraw the page in the styles of other recognizable comics (Tintin, Adventure Time, Garfield, and shojo manga).  It was fun seeing what the new styles did to the page, and a great drawing exercise!  Plus, I got to draw more kawaii Batman.  Awwww yeah.

Holy hell it feels like I haven’t done a straight-up comic page in forever.  Feels good, man.  Feels good.

This comic is an illustrated excerpt from The Lucifer Effect by Philip Zimbardo.

For my experimental comics class this week we had to make a comic that had to be destroyed in the process of reading it.  Mine was a cake comic that had to be eaten in order to see the end, which was painted onto the tray beneath the cake.  My fellow comic majors were happy to help with the eating portion of the project.

Remember this comic?  Welllllll, I’m gonna have some copies of it for sale at MCAD’s mini-comics con, so it just got a cover!  A Star Wars cover.  Because.

More comics.  And I’ve clearly been watching too much Supernatural.  ~Tra la la~
