Gradually Green

A narrative graphic zine which addresses concerns about our environment, community and sustainability. To avoid being didactic, I made the main character much more passive than a typical comic protagonist; she makes small, day-to-day actions. Instead of using speech or thought bubbles, the newspaper speaks for her. I intentionally made the political agenda of "She Stands" open-ended in hopes that the readers would feel free to form their own opinions about her tactics.

The illustrations are hand drawn and painted, then compiled and edited using Photoshop. Tape binding. 10 pages. 8.5 x 11 x .25 inches. 2007. Edition of 6. $50
