timelapse of the easter strip

color was really important in this strip (i mean, color is always important for me, and i kind of sweat it when coloring the strip, but color was especially important to the storytelling of this particular strip) i don’t think this strip could have worked in black and white (and some of my past strips absolutely could have, but i like color…and now i’m not even sure of what my original point was. anyway, hope you enjoy seeing the strip come together at high speeds, it always seems a minor miracle to me when a strip is finished

I’m not even sure it is clear what is going on. even the colors of the strip were…

snowball time lapse

here’s the timelapse of me drawing the snowball comic strip this is an interesting one to look at because the strip went through so many changes after i stopped recording i decided to run it vertically having no expression on the little guy in the last panel felt most right for the ‘punchline’ but even more interesting (to me i guess) was the decision to change the first panel the close up of little guy packing a snowball seemed to ruin the ‘rhythm’ of the piece that panel seemed too ‘big’ – too ‘loud’ for the next three panels for…
