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...


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

What an amazing idea! I love your execution of it.
What is also amazing about this is that it's a noble task that isn't daunting at all. Totally acheivable, which is what makes it attractive as an activity :)

Re: lovely

Yeah, that is what I liked about doing the one page, it makes it pleasingly achievable.

Also, you can sum up the idea in one snappy internet-friendly sentence!
