Tigrikorn#14 comix fanzine


Fun Junk


Student Work www.geocities.com/tigrikorn

In a highschool sketchbook, was merged the mythical unicorn with a tiger... thus creating an amalgam that represents two natures: Idealistic Fantasy and Fierce Reality—TIGRIKORN. He treads the line between competing worlds and ideals; a bit of a misfit, his adventures are chronicled here. FINALLY! Welcome to Issue # 14 of Tigrikorn! Sorry that it’s so late. I’m not exactly sure, but there might be more student work in this edition than any previous issue of Tigrikorn. This edition is also published ONLINE. Check out the TigriKorn Web site:

This edition is full of their toons but there is even more online ---and some in full color! I hope you enjoy the mix of comix art in the following pages.

This issue I’m offering a little game that has become popular lately...

...Spot the Difference!! See if you can find at least Five differences in the two pictures at right. Go to the Tigrikorn Website to see a color version of the picture: (www.geocities.com/ tigrikorn). Have fun.

You just gotta check out this site: www.cartoonmilitia.com You can see an animated comic strip adventure of Jack Spade and Tony Two-fist who are the creations of Steve Rolston. (Requires Flash Player plugin) When you get to the site, just click on the “Comics” section. On 56k modem, takes 5 minutes to download. It’s worth the wait.

Arthur’s Pad by Doug Jennings I hate when that happens...


...I wake up before I can rescue myself!

Mert and Syd’s rocket Heimlich manuver saved Arthur from the pteradactyl but our hero’s rocket shoes won’t kick in to keep him from falling.... Then a chilling thought occurs to him...

-and my readers must hate that too!

“I’d better try to salvage whatever reader interest is left...”

hmm.. Let’s see now...

First, of I haven’t decided what course, is my art teacher my major will be but I’m Doug Jennings. He has taught pretty sure I’m going to be a me so much about the comic Herpetologist. A Herpetolobook world it has really been gist is a person that studies a great adventure being one 18

And also my sis for, umm....being my sis. Then there is all my friends: Kornick, Colin, Uncle P. Richard, Sean Blohm (go for 4!), Cohn, Logan, Ryan, J.R., Jim, Gomez, and finally my

This month we are looking at some sketches from the sketchbooks of Kaleidoscope Students. Remember, your sketchbook is an invaluable tool to practice drawing characters, story settings and drawings from life that help you develop your artistic skill. Adam Nevler submitted this sketch of a ghoulish character from his imagination....

Here are a few samples of sketches by Sockman creator Caroline Wagenaar.
