The thumbnail for this particular #HWAcomic page was extra hilariously bad and deformed, so here’s a glow-up 😎🔥
Blitzing through chapter 10 inks/tones #HWAcomic 💀
Hmmm... cross structure binding #HWAcomic lays flat with no glue. I thought about riso but maybe I’ll just do two diff cover colour stocks instead 🧐?? So many options... so much effort 😭
Spent too much time playing https://overfull.itch.io/plantdaddy
Some WIP because I couldn’t find much visual reference for in-progress steps.
1) You start with 2 separate covers. Back cover A has straps, and the front cover B has the spine + slots to accept straps. Thread A straps into B slots (cut at bottom face/edge of spine)
2) Open the book and sew the signatures to the threaded straps on the inside
3) thread strap through another set of cut slots, at top edge/face of spine
4) thread strap through another set of cut slots, on front cover
Trying a no-glue way of getting bookblock/signature to stick to spine/cover! This is cross structure binding ‘linked’ (see: http://www.outofbinding.com )
Prototype made with misprints 👻 I’m impressed with how sturdy it is 🤩 the trimmer is leaving indents on my stock, maybe I shouldn’t be pressing down as hard 🧐
I think the spine is at risk of getting crushed during trimming if your measurements aren’t precise
I still have 2 chapters to ink hahaha, but this prototype book flips like a *dream* after trimming...so nice...! Getting hype!!
I followed the kettle stitch video from Sea Lemon bit.ly/BindingMethods all of their vids are very easy to follow!
Thinking about getting a curved binding needle because it was hard to get a straight needle underneath the stitches as the signature block became more tighter
I wanted to do the ship meme...

Finished #HWAcomic ch.11 pencils (16p) so I drew myself a congratulatory Pinkey 🥰
TFW he cares more about food than you
Starting to pencil the last (?) chapter for the #HWAcomic book.
The story could extend infinitely, so I have been waffling about what to make the cut off for the printed version. There is a lot of neg out there right now, so maybe it would be good to leave things on a more positive note I’ve drawn some 4-panel strips exclusive to printed version 🤓 and the freetalk will be weird and random (as usual) with room floorplans, etc.
Did my own vers of hourly comics, which was ink #HWAcomic for as many hours as I could until my hand/wrist told me to stop ✋ I thought I could blitz through inking 12 pages, but I WAS WRONG 👻 there are too many crowd scenes 😞
