misprints

This is a long overdue post that I’ve been meaning to get around to because some of my friends have been waiting to see this.

So, I mentioned how the first roll from my holga hadn’t turned out, and the second, sad to say, did not either. i was very distraught to find this out since i had taken many wonderful pictures with that roll. being the dummy i am, and the fool who doesn’t read instructions, i idiotically assumed regular 35mm film would suffice for a holga and i did not realize you needed specific film for it. so when i went to pick up the prints that didn’t end up turning out from the second roll, i found out that there were a few that did turn out from the first roll. they let me have them for free, well, because, just take a look for yourself..

the film seemed to have mixed and a few very interesting pictures seemed to have been created in the process.

in this, starting left to right, you can find: my friend julia’s chin and neck, my friend devin’s shirt, a bridge a train goes across, a car mirror, my friend sophia’s sister’s cat nigel ,and my grandma’s face.

in this one you see that a negative was somehow developed over? the picture of someone’s face. i initially thought it was jordan’s face, but i’m not so sure now because we’d compared it to his face and found that it didn’t match up quite like i thought it did. so, nameless face that i cannot recognize is also in this picture.

this one actually turned out fairly clear. it’s of my mom and my dog tessa, however, sophia’s chest appears on tessa’s back and my mom’s hand.

and this is the last one, of sophia’s face. 

i actually really enjoy how these did, or didn’t turn out it. they’re all very unique and interesting to look at and i don’t know, i just find it fascinating for how they came out.

So a friend gave me a late Christmas present, and nothing strange until I read the summarry. Sometimes I feel like the universe is running an ad campaign, because seriously. Putting the summary for one of the young avengers books on the back of one that’s rather unrelated is almost cruel, considering I haven’t bought it yet.

SEARCH FOR SOMEONE WHO GOES TO LINCOLN HIGH SCHOOL IN WISCONSIN!

Hi. So. I go to Carver Center for Arts and Tech. One of our yearbooks got the interior for one of your yearbooks. Actually, it’s really hilarious and I want to talk to someone who goes to this school.

So, the Senior Class’s Motto was like “Finished, but we’ve just begun” and your class song was “Tattoos on this Town.” The colors in the yearbook were red and black, so I assume that’s your school’s colors?

ANYWAY. I WANT TO KNOW IF YOU GOT A YEARBOOK WITH OUR INTERIOR???

Top image is the Newark’s Star-Ledger misprint, which is Yost’s favorite version of this panel. Second image (bottom left) is the Los Angeles Times misprint, and Yost’s second favorite version. The third image is his least favorite, the cartoon as he created it. You should be able to see all the misprints, if I remembered to tag them correctly.
