Poison Apple Cover by sadwonderland Poison Apple Cover by sadwonderland
I will finally be selling The Poison Apple Book of Stories, in adorable ashcan format, at MangaNext and AnimeUSA. Also on my Etsy!

Don't know what an ashcan is? It's an older term for mini-comic, a DIY indie half-size comic or booklet, much favored by part-time and professional artists as a fun, inexpensive way of sharing stories and media. I prefer them to expensive Lulu-style online book publishing because they're easier to make, cheaper for the buyer and faster to restock. You can read more about their history here: [link]

We made them all the time in SCAD as part of the comic book curriculum, or just for fun and to trade with other students...I still have my final project one that I made my senior year, as well as few others traded to me by others in my class.

I love ashcans, as they're a great way to get exposure for your art, they're fun to make, free of any size or printing restrictions and only limited by your imagination.

I hope you'll enjoy The Poison Apple Book of Stories when it finally comes becomes available on my Etsy!

I love the traditional meets modern design! I especially like the leg sneaking out the dress ;-)

It reminds one of Aubrey Beardsley.
