Here’s a shout out to my classmate, Eleri Harris. She’s a real go getter. She’s trying to raise funds to jet down to her motherland, Australia. She’s doing so by selling a full run of 400 mini comics that document her forays in American Culture as an Australian cartoonist. She’s nearly halfway there.
Here’s a message from the cartoonist herself:
On June 1 my beloved friend Fifi is marrying a hippy name of Jarrah (he seems like an okay bloke) on a beach or something back home in Tasmania.
Clearly it’s important for me to be there – to live draw the entire event, tell embarrassing stories about Fifi’s colourful dawn of the new millennium youth and be a witness in the ceremony in a fancy frock.
The catch? I am a broke cartoonist studying for a masters on the other side of the planet and I can’t afford the airfare.
This is where you come in. I have made 400 copies of a mini-comic called #americanadventure detailing episodes of weirdness, humour and hi-jinx in the land of the free.
I need to sell all of them to cover my Qantas oriented debt!
They’re 16 pages, silk screen covered tiny things and they’re five bucks.
You can buy one here:
Eleri’s got a knack for humor and among my classmates she does some of my favorite memoir comics.
She’s already sent out the first 100 editions, so they’re going fast! Hop on over to Eleri’s Big Cartel shop and find out what the #americanadventure is all about.
