Historical New Hampshire Vol. 71 No. 1

The current issue of Historical New Hampshire magazine (Vol. 71, No.1) features a cover article I drew about the “Live Free & Draw” method of making historical comics based on primary source texts.  Entitled “Drawing Freeman Colby,” this 18-page full-color article outlines my basic comics creation process, and looks more deeply into some of the issues involved in drawing Freeman Colby Vol. 2.

Subtopics include:

  • Reading primary source texts
  • How to draw comics
  • Drawing faces
  • Drawing settings
  • Questioning sources
  • Gaps in sources
  • Inclusive (multi-source) research

The issue is available at NH Historical Society’s website.  Sales support NHHS’s core mission “to educate a diverse public about the significance of New Hampshire’s past and its relationship to our lives today.”  View @ NHHistory.org >>
