The Cave Painters published in The Offbeat Literary Magazine

20170205_133758The Cave Painters was a short story I did a while ago after reading an article about recent scientific research that indicated up to 75% of the neolithic cave painters were women. I was overcome at the idea of my visual-storytelling-foremothers and what their life must have been like, so I did this 8 page comic about them. I tracked down actual cave paintings and carefully reproduced them, incorporating their story into mine. It was a lot of fun, and it just got published in MSU’s literary magazine, The Offbeat.20170205_134513
The print quality is gorgeous, even if I forgot to color-correct some of the files before sending them in…so the sequences that take place at night are once again super-dark. Sigh.
