First of all, sorry for the delay in this post. We have (as they say) been experiencing technical difficulties. What’s gone wrong? What hasn’t gone wrong? The list includes, but isn’t limited to: fountain pen seal failures, computer crashes, email problems, download errrors, and the real capper, the failure of the absolutely essential overhead light in the studio– and I don’t think it’s just a burnt out light bulb either. I’ve dealt with the other stuff myself or left it to my providers to fix (and I think they’ve done so), but the light fixture will have to wait for help. So there won’t be any after hours drawing for a while.
Luckily, I managed to get all of my lettering done before it started to get dark:If you click on the photo, you can even read some if it. Like all of my lettering, it ranges from “readable, in an extremely naive style that some generous people claim to find pleasant” to “crummy”, but it’s my lettering and my drawings just don’t look right to me without it. Anything with a line through it will be replaced at the end of the process, and the rest of it always looks better when the art around it is also inked. This particular comic has one huge advantage when it comes to lettering:four whole pages that are in mime with no lettering at all! That’s one third of the total, and I say that’s great. I think I may be ready to do another comic that’s all in mime.
