adventures in lalaland: a graphic novella

Moving can suck. But it can also be highly entertaining as you sort through forgotten belongings, memories, letters from high school BF’s, so-bad-they-are-awesome 80’s pictures…and of course that graphic novel project from graphic design school.

What’s even more entertaining is that this is before California was in the picture, before Lalatopia, before I found my artist wings (obv), and before tutu’s had become a wardrobe essential…just goes to show that some seeds are planted deep…and if you can imagine it…you can create it! (For those new to the blog I’m actually moving to the Lalaland in 10 days.)

I believe this was an assignment for a creative thinking class circa 2009 — we had to create a concept and rough mock-up for a graphic novel (rough being the operative word here!).   So, without further ado — the debut of my first, and likely last, web novella: Adventures in LalaLand — The case of the missing chocolate chips.

Although the story is at or around the reading comprehension level of an untrained monkey — here’s a little background to give you a running start:

When we first meet our heroine, her favorite breakfast is about to be interrupted by a very rude discovery (Click the first pic to open the slideshow)…
