Thanks to the couple of folks who reminded me that yesterday was not just my birthday, but the birthday of another lesbian cartoonist, the phenomenal Kris Kovick. She died of cancer in 2001, quite young. The above image is a random page from one of her sketchbooks. She gave me two of these when I visited her once, back in the nineties. She just handed them to me, these sketchbooks exploding with brilliant ideas and succulent drawings. It was hard to pick one page to scan because every one is a gem.
Soon after Kris died, I drew this little book about my friendship with her, for her memorial service. I’m trying to figure out how to display the story here, sequentially. But all I’ve been able to come up with is sticking the panels here, in vertical order.
If anyone can tell me an easy way to make them display in such a way that you can click “next,” and get the next panel, like a slideshow, let me know. (Hey! Cool! Here you can view the story like a clickable slide show, thanks to the generous coder NLC!)
