Simple by Maré Odomo
I’m excited to announce that we have teamed up with Maré Odomo to bring you this awesome exclusive comic to print, ‘Simple’. Things are never as clear cut as we wish we could make them. A part of growing up is realizing that the world is blanketed in more shades of gray than blacks and whites. Maré presents that beautifully in this four panel comic.
We will be having this print up for pre-order from today, April 30th until May 8th. The print will be pre-order only, and that is the only way you can guarantee yourself a print. ”Simple” is printed on Smooth, Fine Art, 270 gsm, 15 mil., archival paper and is 8” x 8” in size. The print is $20 and comes with the loving attention to detail and hand-written and packaged care that we here at nope are known for.

This weekend I took some photos of this really beautiful print by Maré Odomo for Nope Clothing. You should definitely order one.
This is a comic about being a kid, and about how we treat pokémon/animals. It’s about making fan art.
It’s been a while since Black & White came out, and it’s taken me this long to be okay with continuing this series in some form. I felt that if I made more of these comics, I was just doing what other people wanted. It felt like pandering.
I’m not a superfan. My Black Version has been saved over and lent out. Oshawott is living with a friend (I think). I don’t watch the show. I play the TCG with my students every Thursday and we chit-chat, but some of them are better than me. They have better cards.
But I still write these comics in my head. And I can’t help but compare my life as a cartoonist to the life of a trainer. You’ll see more of that in the future, I hope.
I drew this comic to remind myself that maybe it’s okay to make things. Maybe I have a unique perspective on this franchise, or at least the experience and background to pull it off. Or maybe none of that matters and I should just make things because it makes me happy. I don’t know. Life is hard.
