We Love Food! Comic Collaboration from ’98!

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about Japan since I’ll be going there in November and visiting my cartoonist friend Yuuko Koyama. We have been pen pals since about 1996 and have collaborated on two comics together during my previous stays in Japan. We’ll be collaborating again this year and it made me want to dig up our old comics. Once I found them I thought it would be fun to post them in anticipation of our new mini-comic!

So here is a mini we made (we drew it in one night) in 1998, arguably my first food-focused work “We Love food! / No Word  With Food“. It is partially bilingual and one half reads English style (left to right) while the Japanese reads right to left. To read it that way start from the bottom and scroll up. Yuuko did her pages as lovely pencil drawings. So talented!
