[Blog Tour] Shark Summer Graphic Novel Book Review
I've been waiting to review this book since last month. The wait is finally over as today's my stop for the blogtour of Shark Summer by @ira_marcks hosted by @TBRBeyondTours ARC provided by @NetGalley @LittleBrownYR #sharksummer #tbrandbeyondtours

30 Days of Pride Reads: Goldie Vance
Tumblr media
Synopsis: GOLDIE VANCE IS ON THE CASE Sixteen-year-old Marigold "Goldie" Vance has an insatiable curiosity. She lives at a Florida resort with her dad, who manages the place, and it's her dream to one day be the hotel's in-house detective. When Walter, the current detective, encounters a case he can't crack, together they utilize her smarts, skills, and connections to solve the mystery...even if it means getting into a drag race, solving puzzles, or chasing a helicopter to do it!
My review: this was a cute read! I love Hope Larson's writing and art, and this reminded me of stories I read when I was younger. It was light, easy, and fun!

I borrowed Sheets, a middle grade graphic novel, for my kid and ended up reading it myself. It’s pretty depressing but well written, and the illustrations are amazing. I gave this 4 stars on Goodreads.

Okay but I just had an idea for a cottagecore inspired wip with fairies where mc wants to confess her love for her crush so she bakes them bread and it’s just wholesome because I say so and now I cannot not think about it 🥺 like i only have this image of mc with a small basket of baked goods, their fairy sitting on their shoulder and whispering “she’ll like these, i’m sure!”

Stepping Stones ~ Lucy Knisley
Stepping Stones ~ Lucy Knisley
Rating: 4/5 A graphic novel for the younger crowd, Stepping Stones is a delightful story of moving out of the city to the countryside with Jen’s mom. Jen loved her life in the city, and while she gets that it’s pretty in the country, she doesn’t know why they had to move. She’s bored.

More Characters from The Wondrous Wayfarer
Tumblr media
Continuing our visit to the Wayfarer... Isanthe is a centauress who is in charge of the teams that gather materials when they visit worlds. She welcomes Gavin to the fold, and tries to help him adjust. 
Qhosero is an elderly naga. He helps people on the Wayfarer find their roles, and makes sure jobs get done. The third member of the leadership team is Major Skreenath, a two-headed eagle-man. He oversees security and discipline. Though Isanthe, Qhosero, and Skreenath serve as the leaders of the various beings aboard the Wayfarer, none of them claims to be in charge of the vessel itself.
Jarzoz is a powerful psychic. Though human, she comes from a different world than Gavin (who comes from our own world). Her talents include implanting a common language in the minds of everyone - a necessity when the inhabitants of the Wayfarer don’t share the same homeworld, much less the same language.
Sigmis appears as an athletic man wreathed in fire. Despite his fearsome appearance, Sigmis is a musician. He also uses one of his horns to signal the gatherer teams when it’s time to return to the Wayfarer.
These are a few of the Wayfarer’s fascinating and varied inhabitants. Many more lurk in the pages of the book, and I have new faces for the next book!

Background Hell
Backgrounds are the bane of my existence. It takes so long for me to draw and paint them in the computer.
I'm a realistic drawer trying to draw the comic style, so it has been years of struggle for me just to draw cartoony characters. I haven't practiced drawing cartoony backgrounds, so I'm learning as I go.
I don't like reading realistic-looking comics so I don't want to draw my own comics that way even though it would probably be easier for me to draw.
I love very cartoony, sometimes "naively" drawn comics, but it takes me so long to draw that way. It's frustrating. I don't know why I always take the more difficult path.
My husband says I should just draw the way I can draw because when I draw my cartoony style, people think I can't draw. I know he's right and it's very disappointing and discouraging.
Anyway, getting back to the backgrounds. I know that I need to simplify, so sometimes I OVER-simplify, but mainly because I don't want to draw it.
Below, is the first drawing I did that I thought was done months ago. Recently, I learned something that made me want to do better, so I redid that drawing which is the second drawing below.
I'm still not 100% happy with the mountain color, but for now I'm gonna leave it. I don't want it to get too realistic that it will contrast too much with the style of the comic. I did that with a few of my other backgrounds and I know I have to go back and simplify them. Aaaargh!
I recently heard an art director say that the style has to stay consistent throughout the comic. *banging my head on the wall.*

“I think the important thing to remember about Koreans in general is how strong they are. They’re survivors. They have survived centuries of invasions and so many different dynasties and countries that just wanted to take over this beautiful land. And they survived and just became stronger. And that is maybe because of the strength of our culture and our ties to one another, family bonds. I don’t know what exactly the reason is, but I see Koreans especially as survivors. I see them as strong people who have suffered so much but aren’t defined by the trauma they’ve suffered. They are more than the trauma of their country.“

Flamer by Mike Curato
Flamer by Mike Curato A graphic novel about a boy struggling with his attraction to his bunkmate at Boy Scouts camp. It's gorgeously drawn, occasionally haunting, and ultimately uplifting. I especially loved the dream sequence with Frodo and Sam! #LGBT
