Other Etiquettes

Four years ago, I started posting pages for my asemic graphic novel Esgr Navigator on Tumblr. This novel of 229 pages has only appeared online, which is how I originally intended for it to exist, but a couple of months ago I started to explore what it would take to print it on paper. Before I got very far in the process, I decided to edit out a few pages that made me wince. Then I started to re-write, chopping up or aggregating pages, or combining them with new details. Then I started to add words into spaces that seem to beg for text. Then I had to stop and give the project a new title, Zomynesgr Avigatorsin, because it was becoming something else.

  1. Stunning work as ever Lin, I really like the layout of these pieces too and think they’d look fantastic printed out in a physical book format. Can’t wait to add the finished project to my bookshelf, my copy of Martian Comics would appreciate the company! All the best x

    • Thank you, Lee. I almost (but not really) regret showing off these pages, because it is early days for this project. I am not sure yet what the concept will be. I am experimenting with introducing verbal text into my asemic work. I like it, but I still have to sort out how I feel about this hybrid form.

    • Work on this project has entered a pause, but that seems to be part of its natural process. I look at the pages that are done, or almost done, and feel good about them.
