I have to remember to do more background/establishing shots. Otherwise I’ll just keep drawing closeups of peoples faces and hands. I can’t help myself.
I am so irritated with myself because I drew this page with the wrong dimensions and had to fix it in Photoshop 😛 I guess I had a major brain fart because I added an extra inch and half to the height of the drawing. I didn’t realize it until I put it in the scanner and it was larger than normal. I don’t know how I managed to do that! Jeez!
It’s been a really hard couple of weeks over here, but working on Paranormal Petunia always makes me feel better. It’s so great to see your comments as well. I’d like to give a special thanks to the local blog The Valley Nerd Watch for mentioning me in their Valley Creators list. I really appreciate it! The “best known” bit gets me. I suppose it’s possible for a handful of people to know me best for this, but I have a way to go before I am breaking any records for readership or any kind of notoriety.
I’m back from an adventurous weekend! My brother threw an amazingly nerdy bachelor party in which we saved the world from certain destruction. It involved many clues and mysterious videos. At one point, a cook from the restaurant we were at came out and handed me a locked suitcase, saying “the eagle is in flight!” It was fantastic. We had to go to the Cliff Walk in Newport, RI to solve a handful of riddles that gave us the combination that opened the suitcase. Inside was a USB drive which contained another mysterious video with another riddle. We finally discovered that we needed to beat 500 heroes in battle in Super Smash Brothers before midnight in order to save the world. Needless to say, it was pretty great. I hope to find a way to post the videos for you all to see because they were outstanding!
Anyway, enjoy this comic. Hopefully you weren’t expecting this. Petunia certainly was startled.
