Today’s GLP comic is all me. After I posted Tuesday’s panel, I received encouragement from both GLP historian Michael Veerduer, and Yost’s former assistant, Ha Kim Ngoc, to occasionally publish as myself under the Geranium Lake Properties title. I think it is a perfectly normal thing to get advice from fictional people. As soon as I learned to read, I started absorbing all sorts of life lessons from mythical beings, from Bartholomew Cubbins to Cinderella to Spider-Man to Dear Abby to Jesus. For my understanding of Wm. Yost, I have relied heavily on the novel The Boy in the Yellow Leatherette Portmanteau by Gralie Bohe, a fictional piece of fiction by a fictional author. (The novel is set in the fictional town of Whittlespear Beach, California. California is not fictional, it just seems that way.)
This can be a visual poem about the last two-and-a-half weeks of my life. Or it can be a travel poster. Or it can be an excuse/explanation for why I have not been posting on schedule. Or it can be all three. One of the beauties of asemic writing is that it can express so much, so efficiently.
Another piece of the mystery project I am working on. I am nervous about sharing these bits, since I have made not even half the pages, and I don’t know where it’s going, and it will likely not be finished for another 6 months. I am also worried that some of the complex detail (this fragment is a good example) will be lost when printed.
Before I cut it down and put all the comicky stuff on it, this is the image I made for today’s panel of Geranium Lake Properties.
Four (of fifteen) from the Loxodrome series.
