Reaction/thoughts in response to Pimpkillah: The Protector (An Introduction to Pimpkillah)

 

I recently received and read Pimpkillah: The Protector (An Introduction to Pimpkillah) , a zine/story written by Sarah Bitely and illustrated by Christina Mirani. This story is about (and narrated by) lead character Sloane Stone who helps and protects people at an AIDS clinic and in the surrounding lands of Africa.

 

And then I re-read it. And then I re-read it again.

Review for Book Art

From an Etsy buyer:



by Crowbelle



Interesting work. I lean towards the second issue: I like the smaller

size and the greater contrast of dark and light in the pictures - I think the greater contrast allows the viewer/reader more access to the book.

Lets see, one of my favorite

pictures is in the first book - the one where you wrote: When dealing with nature....

very strong image. I like Zines that have strength of vision - ones that reach

Book Art 2 is SO almost done
