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

Heard about it through Drawn

This is a great idea! I'm doing a drawing for every day of 2010 and I didn't do anything special for my hundredth drawing, so this'll be a fun way to celebrate. :)

Done! :)

Here's a simple one from The Secret Garden. I'm working on another that's a bit more detailed. :)

Thanks! My hand's out of commission for a few days (damn finals sprain), but I'm contemplating two different books.

Btw, have you seen the Moby Dick project?

I have not seen the Moby Dick project! (and a ten second Google did not turn it up for me)

A-ha! Perhaps because I called it by the wrong name. Matt Kish is doing One Drawing for Every Page of Moby Dick. And it is beyond awesome. :D
