HOT PURSUIT - A GUIDE TO ARCHIVES FOR ARTISTS AND MAKERS
Lizard Ramone in Hot Pursuit is a comic book conceived of and printed by the Providence Public Library in 2017, working in collaboration with artist Jeremy Ferris, who created the storyline, illustrations, and text. The comic was developed as a guide to demystify archival research for artists and other makers. We wanted it to be specific enough that it could help our users, but general enough to be applicable to anyone.
As part of the project I was commissioned by the Providence Public Library to create a single-page, illustrated insert to accompany copies of the comic distributed locally.
My aim was to introduce open archives and historical collections to Rhode Island artists outside of academia. Text written in collaboration with PPL Special Collections Curatorial Assistant Angela DiVeglia.
