My very first comic EVER!

Once again digging through my collection of old artworks (not-so-narcissistically) and found this old gem. It's back when I was 7 & started doing comics for the first time.

The comic's titled "Little Green Fairies" and it was completely in Indonesian, cuz I don't speak English much at that age. But no prob folks, translation will be provided.

Here's the back page, actually. The character's names are based on my sister & cousin (though my cousin's actual name is Nisya. I didn't know how to spell her name right yet back then). This comic was born in January 1999.

Translation:
LITTLE GREEN FAIRIES by Rara
in: "Having Fun"
1. One day, the Little Green Fairies are having a picnic at their grandma & grandpa's house.
Nisya: Delicious!
Alta: Yummy!

2. And then the two walked back home. How joyful.
Nisya: Let's go home
Alta: Oh, how fun.

3. While they were having fun, they were making milk, getting the cookies and watching TV.

4. They were called in by Rara. Dita gave them a camera. Little green fairy Nisya was confused where the present was was but Alta told her where it wass.
[Okay this part is cut off so I'm just assuming what goes on in the description]
Rara & Dita (carrying a camera and their present): Here's to both of you
Nisya: Where?
Alta: There it is!

5. The green fairies then opened it.

6. "Wow, a paper miniature house!" Nisya said. "The paper is ironed first," added Alta. Nisya nodded.
....seriously? The story was THAT lame? The comic should be renamed "Getting a Present" or "The Daily Life of the Little Green Fairies" or something like that. But nevertheless these fairies seemed like they had fun having a picnic & then watching TV afterwards while dunking cookies in milk. Doesn't everyone do that?

And I'm just keeping this here as evidence. Or when I someday might be using this idea and remake the story.

Poster: Eye Chart with Energy Saving Tips


Here's an eye chart that looks like an eye chart from afar, but actually carries tips to save energy if you look closer and further down.

I put a leaf divider on the other version just to separate the words.
