Come see me at MeCAF today!
Below are some images showing the convention and where I will be!
Hey! Thanks for being patient with this update. The weekly posting schedule feels really good so far. This page was fun and effortless to draw, which is unusual because I was feeling so rushed and overworked before. I think this schedule will work much better. I hope you don’t mind.
Also, I started experimenting with watercolor paints! Can you notice? I used to use Prismacolor art markers for the kind of “wash” feel in my comics, but they are expensive and not super flexible. The watercolor washes are super fun to do. I like it a lot. I need to learn more about watercolor technique, but for now it works well as a simple grayscale wash.
Have a great weekend!
I started reading some romance comics and I’m generating my own opinions on how to do romance well in comics. It’s easier said than done! Let me know if you have any thoughts about what I did here. There was some build up in earlier chapters, and now this. Did you want Petunia and Nick to get together? Were you surprised by what he did here? Do you still want them to get together? Do you think Petunia is ready for a serious relationship?
I observed the weirdest first date at a cafe the other day. It really made me wish I was still doing the chapter where Petunia was going on all kinds of dates. Sometimes real life can feel so perfectly (and awkwardly) scripted.
P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day!
