Thumbnail Mini Comic

This 2"x3" minicomic was made from thumbnails I drew in my sketchbook with an 02 Micron.  I photocopied the sketches at 125%, cut out each page with a blade, and then assembled the comic by gluing the thumbnails into a simple book I made out of Xerox paper and a staple.  The above pic shows the front and back covers (upper left) and 3 interior spreads.

Why did I do this?  I'm planning on self-publishing this comic in installments and I wanted to double-check layouts and page turns before I started inking issue #1.

Bonus sketch: This is Sibley, the star of the aforementioned comic drawn with an 05 Micron and red Tombo marker.  She is holding Tengu, her beloved pet and companion.
