the little things

It’s the little things that take longest with comics … I’ve got all the artwork finished for graylight but I’m now on my third day of fixing speech bubbles. I want each one to be hand drawn of course, to fit what ever it contains … a slight vibrato, a whisper or a shout can be seen in the outline.

So, counting on maybe two more days. Must. Stay. Strong. Through. Tedium. Well, actually there’s something poetic about monotone work once you get used to it. It’s summer here, by the way.
