India Journal

This is one of two new books I am going to be bringing with me to CAKE (Chicago Alternative Comics Expo) this weekend. It’s part comic and part zine and it includes writing, drawing, collages, photographs, and a recipe. ┬áIt’s all based on a journal I kept on a trip I recently took to India. The book is 54 pages and has a handmade cover. If you’re interested in buying a copy, they can be ordered through paypal or by mail order for $5. Please send an email to: carrieneumayer@yahoo.com

New Lyra comic in progress

When I was a junior in high school, I started creating comic zines about a girl named Lyra who was a sort of alter ego of mine. Lyra grew up with me and I created 9 issues about her experiences in college and life in her early 20s. The last one I created was in 2004. I did make an autobiographical comic about my first year teaching middle school as a sort of one off project in 2007. I recently decided to revive Lyra and create a 10th issue. So far I have 6 pages drawn and inked. I have been drawing from a comic-style diary I kept during 2011, but also throwing in more recent stories.
