… And that wraps up chapter 8. Chapter 9, the final chapter, will start up on Monday. Be there!
As a Friday treat, I thought I’d tease some of the sketches for the project that MK and I are working on for SPX.
Have a good weekend!
EDIT: I totally wrote this post for Friday’s page, meaning to write it for today. I realized it when I got up this morning and just copied pasted it. Sorry!
This is jumping the gun a little bit, but there will be a book release reading/gallery opening for Americus at Powell’s City of Books here in Portland on Thursday, September 1st. Anyhow, along with all the other stuff I need to get done over the summer, I need to figure out which pages to put up for the show. I know having an art show of comics pages is kind of silly because a.] it’s meant to be read in print and not hung up on the wall, and b.] a lot of the times I’ve done corrections on the pages digitally, so the originals on some of the pages might not be complete.
Despite all of that, I think it’s still fun to see the original pages, or at least I know that I still like to see other people’s originals. So the question I have is ‘Which pages do I put up?’
Does anyone reading have any favorite 2-3 page sequences that they might like to suggest for me to put up in the gallery? I think there’s room for about 15 pages. I also realize that there’s still a whole chapter left, but I’d love any feedback.
Oh, one last thing: I finally got the glass for my light table! And I got a new stool so I can sit comfortably too! Yay! Anyhow, here’s a picture, though the quality is kind of crappy.
Now I don’t have any excuses not to be drawing! I need to start chipping away at our SPX project…
Here was the script that MK had written for this page:
Les: Is the board ready to vote?
Les: Then, for the vote to ban the Apathea Ravenchilde books, yea or nay?
Bea O’Problem: Yea.
Hugh Jass: For the sake of the children! Yea!
Les rolls his eyes.
Les Whinen: Nay.
Max Power: Nay.
Dang, that was like the fastest page ever to write!
It was pretty much the fastest page to draw, too!
