BUZZED - A comic by Paul C. Tumey



THE FLITTER FLUTTER OF LITTLE WINGS

This two-page comic by me (Paul C. Tumey) was created in about 3 hours on June 17, 2014 at the monthly DUNE comics night at The Cafe Racer in Seattle, WA. This was just one of several comics created that evening and published in DUNE 20. (When I figure out who created this cover, I'll post their name, here)


"Buzzed" spawned from a dream I had the night before. It started with an image from the dream and then sorta became about my whole lifetime. I was working on two things with this piece:

1. Tell a story with a few short narrative captions. (I was influenced by sitting next to David Lasky for a couple of DUNE nights)

2. Create interesting looking, loose art. I used a variety of pens, some white out, and a soft lead pencil.

The Comics of Olivia Gibson



THE COMICS OF OLIVIA GIBSON


Olivia Gibson is the 13-year old daughter of my partner, Claire Mack and her first husband, Randy Gibson. Olivia may well be the most creative person I have ever known. She is a fearless creator, constantly making. She works in a vast array of mediums, from drawing and painting to sewing, crafts, and digital art. Before she was 10, she had written and drawn about 20 books. 

When I started dating her Mom, she honored me by creating special comic books for me as Christmas gifts. Here's the covers to two of them:


Here's the first page of OPEN!


The book is filled with engaging characters, funny business and puns -- tailor-made for me! And, most astonishing, a new character is introduced, -- and Olivia actually MADE the character as a stuffed creature for me!


And here's a spread from GALACTIC STEVE AND HIS ADVENTURES ON HIS ADVENTURE TO PLANET V-027:



Love that "Plink!"

Go, Olivia!
