NOBODY SAID MAKING COMICS WAS EASY

Alright, so I'm back at work at my quote "real job" now and more than a little dissapointed I didn't get as much studio time in as I would have liked to while I was off, but I got this coffee break comics thing to work on now and others have started to comment on it so I got to stay with it right? (note: if your new to this thread you may want to scroll down a few posts)

Commitment is a good thing. Take this page I did last night.
Alright, I know it's probably the stinker of the group. I had less than 40 interrupted minutes to work on the thing, and okay it needs alot of work, but let's focus on the positives here.

Look at what we got. We got a cover and four pages in less than a week, total drawing time, less than 6hrs. Not too shabby eh?
Sure we need a lot of clean-up, corrections, and embelishment, but, the lettering is there, most of the spot blacks are done, and most importantly our story is coming along nicely.

Nobody said making comics was easy... However by staying commited to doing one page a day during coffee/lunch break I was able to pound out this nifty little story using time I had previously thought of as wasted. Mark my words, come July 4th this puppy is going to be in the bag and looking sweet.

GRAB A COFFEE, IT'S TIME TO MAKE COMICS!
