FOREST RIVER SONG: An Artist Comic Book by Sara Kear

Forest River Song was made with unryu paper, linen thread, board, Rendr paper and artist markers.  The most time consuming and enjoyable part of the process was laying out the pages to make sure that turning each one would uncover the next part of the story.  In its own small way the comic is about using meditation to sit with and overcome fear.  It is a reminder that all darkness passes and the world is always a beautiful place. –Sara

kear16Sara Kear is an artist working with metal, fiber, paper and stories.  A love of small objects has led her to making jewelry, small sculpture and little books filled with comics.  She lives in Ohio with a demonic cat which may be part of the reason why she enjoys making stories about girls fighting and sometimes befriending monsters.  After forming a truce with her cat, she is now pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts with a Minor in Creative Writing at Bowling Green State University.  Her work has been on display in various shows throughout Ohio and has received several awards. This may be because the truce was actually demonic pact.   More information about Sara and her work can be found at her website,
