I am Emi Lenox and draw things obvs. Maybe because of my cat drawings. Wherever you know me from, boy am I happy to see you! I would like this place to serve as a bulletin board of what I am currently up to. I don't necessarily post everything I draw to social media but thought here I would post whatever I have done (within contract agreements).

EMI LENOX's day by day autobiographical sketch journey continues in the second volume of EmiTown! Life gets serious in year two with complications of a relationship, the loss of a job, and the excitement of a blooming career. Widely acclaimed for her different approach to diary comics, Emi illustrates each day with humor and brilliance.

Volume Published by Image. Originally published online, the book is a two tone sketch diary of Emi's daily life. Short summary describing this volume. Volumes of artist Emi Lenox's diary.

From the whimsical to the tragic, EMI LENOX brings you into her world with superb cartooning, a brilliant cast of characters, and an innocent perspective often left on the cutting room floor of other diary comics. With a broad range of styles, everyday is an adventure from the morning breakfast burrito to metaphoric tales of superheroes and battlefields of love. Emi proves that life is never dull in her first annual collection of EmiTown! Based out of her hometown, Portland, Oregon, Emi has spent the last year doodling everyday in her diary sketchbook and taking on internships within the comics community. Having been raised on manga (via her Japanese mother) she has dreamed about becoming a cartoonist at a young age. In her early twenties the works of Jeff Smith, Adrian Tomine, and Craig Thompson entered her life and super inspiration struck! This is Emi’s first published work. Introduction by JAMIE S. RICH. "EmiTown is the rare and charming comic that doesn't resort to nudity and misanthropy for it's entertainment. It's just adorable" - David Hahn (Bite Club, Fables) "Emi can draw like nobody's business. Her style is fabulous!" - Jamie S. Rich (You Have Killed Me, Spell Checkers) "Some of the nicest cartooning I've discovered in a long time" - Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth, Essex County) "Emi Lenox misrepresented herself to me as someone who doesn't draw, when in fact she does. Really well too. Good narcissism!" - Jeff Parker (Underground, Agents of Atlas, X-Men: First Class)
This was the first comic book that I have read as an adult. I loved it! It was recommended on NPR Books on Facebook, so I ordered it. It is an autobiographical / journal comic. I thought it was well done and interesting, and definitely reaches beyond the stereotypical comic book audience. I highly recommend it for the creative young-adult type who might be trying to make a career in an artistic field.
This book is quite an interesting read. Every page is an illustrated diary entry. Sometimes we get entries that are just things that everyone has to deal with, like shopping lists or paying bills. However, most of the time it's extremely personal. The art is unique, and the book is beautiful. It's a great read that I have trouble putting down, and a captivating look into Emi's life.
I got this because it had a cool cover and Amazon said I would like it. I wish I had taken the time to see that it was a sketch diary, ie a scatological collection of random happenings in the life of a somewhat dull woman.

If you like the cover art there is plenty more art like it inside. But if you are looking for an interesting narrative (especially if you expected a narrative that involved military cats) look elsewhere.
'EmiTown, Vol. 1' by Emi Lenox is a year in the life of a good cartoonist. It doesn't seem like the sort of thing I liked, but it kind of won me over.

Every page is a day in the life. From expenditures to doodles to adventures with friends. Emi lives in Portland and runs into other local artists from time to time, but most of her days are spent getting together with friends or trying not to buy so much coffee or breakfast burritos.
There isn't a lot of narrative flow, so it just goes on and on. There are personal details, but it's missing something, so it all has a sameness to it. At 400 pages, that can feel a bit tedious after a while, and it did wear on me, but I kept coming back for more of the adorable artwork.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Image Comics, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.

I really thought this would be great from reading several descriptions about it. It was OK... I liked the artwork, which is why I gave 2 stars. The thing about it is I don't see the point. It really is just some random ideas with some sketches. I basically just skimmed the whole thing because it was page after page after page of inconsequential details - the cost of her shoes, how many hours she slept last night, etc. It's supposed to be her journal or an outlet but I'm not sure we needed 400 pages of these little tidbits. I really just don't see the point.
Emi Lenox can definitely draw, and has interesting very well told daily stories, My only complaint was that i couldn't help but feel as though she was censoring her self to a noticeable degree, don't get me wrong clearly its personal, but some of the stories were a little too subtle for my taste, like some things were too personal for her to write about or illustrate, which is understandable sure, but with how good the entries are it would be interesting to see art and writing of that caliber used for more personal issues, for example she mentions that she has been dating but we don't really see much of that, the slight shyness is a little disappointing. However definitely a good read, her relationship with her friends is admirable and has a lot of depth, and the metaphors are clever, her feelings are very well described, I particularly liked the way she described her run ins with douches, racists, drunks, and bums, and the whole thing is a good mixture of fun, funny, dark, and sweet, and her mini comics in between the entires are great, I cant wait for volume two.
I picked this up at a comic book shop a couple of weeks ago and was extremely glad that I did. I am a huge fan of autobiographical comics (i.e. Craig Thompson, Chester Brown, etc.), but was somewhat new to the whole "journal comics" scene. I had read and enjoyed Lucy Knisley's work, but that was about it. I am now a big fan of Emi Lenox's work as well. If you are new to journal comics as well, this is a great place to start. "EMITOWN" is a collection of sketchbook pages (one a day) that Emi did over the course of a year or so. Each page can contain anything from funny anecdotes, to drawings of cat soldiers, to some really awesome art of Batgirl. There isn't a linear narrative per se, but you get pretty into what goes on from day to day. "EMITOWN" also perfectly captures what it's like to be a twentysomething and trying to balance everything, scared the whole time that it won't work out. I quickly became a fan within the first 10 pages. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy, whether on here or at Emi's site [...] She also has a ton of awesome art at her Etsy page [...]that you should check out (and buy!).
