The Page 100 Project [Mar. 19th, 2010|10:22 pm]

So ages ago, Dave Howard suggested to me that it might be an interesting idea for cartoonists to try adapting a part of a novel they liked. And then recently when JD Sallinger died, that notion came back to me, and then I thought oh it might be interesting to attempt to do a comic of some portion of one of his books. And as I sat on the couch staring at the shelves of books, I thought it might be fun to try it with different books. Maybe just a page. Maybe the SAME PAGE from each book. Say, page 100. And thus...

THE PAGE 100 PROJECT

Feel welcome to join in.

Here is my first attempt, from Michael Chabon's "Yiddish Policemen's Union"



I am keeping a list here of the pages people have done. Email me if you do one! jasonturner >at< jasonturnerproject.com

You are right that adapting a novel would be extremely daunting. This is much more do-able as an exercise for me.

As I have been considering doing other books now, it is interesting to just read the one page out of context and try to recall what the heck is going on.
