minicomics live– day 2, post 11

5:19 pm:  The last page is done.  While I wait for it to dry enough to scan, I want to say a few things about minicomics live and what comes next.

First of all, thank you very much for following along.  The stats show that there are a lot of you out there, and I hope that everyone is enjoying it.  Special thanks go out to everyone who commented.  I promise I will answer every comment– just give me a little time.  If you want to comment but haven’t yet, please go ahead. Comments are welcome any time.  And if you are new visitor, I hope you like, and that you will come back regularly.

What comes next?  Well, I’ve been making notes all along, and you can expect a “what I learned from liveblogging a minicomic” post very soon.  I also promise I won’t leave you hanging with the comic itself either.  Now that I have the rough inks, I will go back to my usual work patterns and wait a few days before I clean it up.  But when I do,  I will certainly post the finished pages here.

For now, I’ll post the last page and let it rest awhile.  I really need to walk those poor, patient dogs, this month’s “Hopelessly Lost …” is late, and the EPA is about to declare my kitchen a black site.  I’ll be back tomorrow with this week’s best of the drawing of the day and we’ll go on from there.

Now here’s page 8.  I really should have inked all the Piggy images at once.  By the time I got to this one it had been a couple of hours since I had done one and I messed up two of the lines.  But it’s nothing I can’t fix.

    Woo-hoo! (clap clap clap clap clap)
    By my rough calculation, you did the whole thing in 21 hours. That doesn’t include times for meals or breaks, so actual work time was probably about 18 hours, right? Of course, I’m not including the time needed for drying, erasing, scanning, printing, folding, and stapling, but then that’s not the creative part, either.
    You did it!

    This live progress stuff is great, Pam! Glad to see you back online and updating so frequently. I just found out this evening about your new blog (I was looking over the list of SPX exhibitors and saw this unfamiliar URL next to your name).

    Now that I’ve read through all the posts, time to go shop in the store…

    Hi, Pam. This live comic-making process is great!
    I just discovered this evening that you had a new blog (saw this unfamiliar URL next to your name in the SPX exhibitor lst), and I’m glad you have an online presence again, especially with such frequent updates.
    Now that I’ve caught up on the posts, it’s time to go shop in your store.
