Joe’s Parking and Vision Zero Comics

It's a bit of shameless self-promotion, but I wanted to share of pair of comics pages that I drew. These comment on issues that many Streetsblog L.A. readers care about: parking and Vision Zero. I think that parking, of all the issues that dramatically affect cities, is highly misunderstood, and I wanted to see if I could use a fun visual medium to begin to scratch the surface of the insights I've learned from parking expert Donald Shoup.

Apologies that these aren't highly polished and thoroughly plotted masterworks. They're a couple of my efforts at Melt-thology, a monthly "comics jam" event where aspiring comics creators crank out a comics page in less than three hours. The comics are then collected in a handsome xeroxed chapbook. Melt-thology takes place from 7 to 9:30 p.m. the third Tuesday of each month (for example, tonight) at Meltdown Comics at 7522 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood.
