I finally finished my time machine and blasted myself into the futuristic early 2000’s to harness this new “blog” technology. The main purpose of this is to post regularly as my next comic project comes to fruition--attempts at not completely disappearing off the map as I pour my energies into an upcoming graphic memoir. I’ll try to focus on “Vietnamerica”-related postings, but half the fun for me is seeing what this blog [d]evolves in to as the project develops.
The story is my family’s survival through three wars and subsequent immigrant experience from Vietnam to America. I started uncovering this hidden history in 2001 and began serious work on it in 2006. Recently, I’ve been blessed with a publisher willing to help bring it to life (more on that later) so finally here I am doing what I love all day long AND on a dream project! And all without ever having a Facebook/Myspace/Friendster profile--booyah!
Here’s preview art from the project’s original proposal:
