The thumbnail for this particular page was extra hilariously bad and deformed, so here’s a glow-up 😎🔥

I was red-penning/editing hardcopy on the plane and cringing at all my bad lettering/bubbling choices and bad drawings (even tho at max they’re 2 years old) 💀TBH a big part of this is just me taking 1+ years of drawing/prototyping to figure out what your chara are meant to look like 😇 haven’t even done a speech/voice pass yet 🐌

Hmmm... cross structure binding 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 😭

It's always nice to meet up with fellow creators and talk shop about comic-making. BR was scrolling through my latest chapter on his phone and telling me about all the things he liked/admired about it. So generous...normally I get zero compliments on my stuff so I was screaming internally about it. I think he is one of <4 people I know who read my comic, which is pretty good considering my lack of promotion :thinkhappy:

Evolving the prototype ⭐️ Honestly cursed with high effort comic making AND book making 👻 lay flat is so nice but so much work (is it worth it?). I haven’t quite figured out how to best glue the book block to the cover/spine.

Starting to pencil the last (?) chapter for the 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 :AAAAAA: 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.

The very good graduation plush bear that will get cut off in bleed 😭

Did my own vers of hourly comics, which was ink 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 😞

It is easy to draw dreadful expressions when that is what you feel the most in your own life 😂👌

Back in Ctown, managing to badly sketch 1 page per flight 🐢for some characters I feel compelled to draw them weirder and goofier.

I wonder when I purged SD/chibi-mode out of my comics :thinkhappy:
