This isn't the most insightful thing I've drawn, but here's the second installment of Vision Zero Comics. SBLA readers may recall that I drew the initial installment of Vision Zero Comics back in 2015. This June 2016 installment basically parrots a chart (below) from the city of Los Angeles' excellent Vision Zero booklet [PDF]. My only addition was to try to convey speed through my messy and messier lines.

These comics are part of Melt-Thology - a fun monthly comics jam night that takes place the third Tuesday of each month at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood. I found out about Melt-Thology via its Instagram page. It's a fun, beginner-friendly night of comics creation.
