"Working on this comic about a bird," klaivu wrote in June 2011, posting a striking batch of starter images to SA's Creative Convention subforum. Since that humble origin, klaivu added scores of pages and shopped the finished product to online publishers, culminating in the recent release of Jaybird as an iBook and the launch of a fundraising campaign to transfer it to the printed page. While there's a lighthearted panel here and there, Jaybird isn't a comedic work, but sometimes this space showcases outstanding forums-generated accomplishments regardless of humor content. I'm proud to present an extensive sample of Jaybird, by Lauri and Jaakko Ahonen.
