Another page, back to back due to the delay caused by my flights.

Jump over and read the whole thing here.

“Dating” in primary school was such a strange phenomenon, with it’s own rituals, rites and passages that had to be navigated to the end goal of? Usually avoiding and not talking to the person you were supposedly dating. I remember there was a theory that you should get a guy that the girl you liked, liked, to ask them out for you. Sometimes a note was accompanied, sometimes not. I think the logic was a little fuzzy and I can’t quite wrap my head around it.

Does anyone else remember the weirdness of it all?

With the layout of this page, I wanted to play with a fixed camera. I love long, drawn out shots in film, with characters doing their thing for minutes on end. The stillness of it. I wanted to let these characters act, using their bodies, their faces, their hands.

I think replicating this in comics however, in the way I have tried, creates a different sort of experience. It becomes more about a rhythm, a pattern, a metronome. It’s not the same thing. Maybe in comics the equivalent is a large, calm panel. These panels work great for stretching out time, but it feels like a silent, slow motion kind of thing.

How do you describe the passage of conversation within that stillness without creating panels with an overflow of balloons, or a large series of identical panels… Something to work on and ponder.

Late again due to me being in transit for the last few days. Planes from Florence to Miami, Miami to Mexico City, Mexico City to Oaxaca. You can follow my international arts adventures on my instagram feed here. I keep it updated with all sorts of sketches and everyday photos that often don’t make it on to this site.

Home Time keeps rolling along, with the terrifyingly amazing prospect of a whole lot of hot chips.

You can read the whole page through here.

I remember $2 worth of chips being a lot when I was in primary school, the amount that they wind up with here is mind melting.

As much as I love fish and chips, I am always filled with major regret after eating them. Like my stomach is filled with a lead weight of grease and fat (which it essentially is). There’s a perfect window of consumption though, when the chips are still steaming hot and crispy, and the sauce is cool and sweet, and they make a perfect balance in your mouth. A few minutes later, the chips are all soggy and stale tasting. It’s a fine line.
