Ginger, the Kindergartener

I made this comic book for my extra course at the university. It's about a five-year-old girl named Ginger. This story is a mixture of my childhood memories, and present-day experiences, but some are also fictional.

Well, I am a comic nuts. When I was a kid, I saved my allowance to buy a bunch of Khmer comic stories, Tum Teav, Soprorsith, Thon Chey, etc. I guess my childhood life had always been surrounded by stories and comics. And then I got a chance to learn how to make one of my own! I also received a lot of inspirations from the western cartoonists, like Jim Davis and Spiky, the creators of  "Garfield" and "Peanuts".

This one is more influenced by Peanuts. A group of children who seemed to have interesting childhood journey around their little world. And Garfield is a big fat cat, remember? He's my idol! I wish I could continue to make comics, but reality doesn't like to allow a person to do everything she wants.

Anyway, one of the episodes I dedicated to my beautiful prof. I hope you guys enjoy them. And tell me what you think. *Wink*

  1. It makes me miss my almost-twin sister! Terribly! :( and it reflects how badly i am to be that little Ginger!

    And it makes me miss:

    - My passion for French & English literature.
    - My childhood activity at Bib... drawing, coloring, painting, crafting, singsong-ing... etc.

    I love drawing and comics as you do. I have a great passion for it. I used to get many rewards for mon dessin back then too.

    Dang! You dug my past passion!!!! Hate you!

  4. @P: I have no idea how my comic story could give you such a mean heart to hate me. Well, you just don't put your passion into motion, that's all. I told you every child is a artist by nature, but it takes nurture to remain as one.

    I understand how you feel, I miss my childhood too, esp now. But sometime by making something like comics to remind you about it, helps!

  5. @Kunna: I like her too. I don't want to be mean to her, but sometimes childhood life is a lot more interesting and adventurous.

  6. @Kelly: I want to! But I have a lot on my plate than my braced teeth can chew!!! I wish there was a job that pays me just to make fun stuff like writing and drawing. *Grin*

    What, do you really feel a need to tell me about that? I joined that Japanese competition too. I was a representative of my school, even I didn't get to travel to Japan to receive the prize. hahaha...

    Well, we're INFJ, so we tend be a little more artistic than others, esp ENFP and INFP right? hahaha...jkd!

  9. @Sara: if I had more than 24 hours a day, I would continue the Ginger series! But now I'm making a story for DEAR project as I'd mentioned before. I'm not complaining, I love to do comics, but it's just that I want to wait until I have time for this. Don't worry, I won't let your lessons go down the drain. :D
