Dreams do come true in New Orleans!

Here’s a test page for my thesis comic. It’s that time! I plan to finish thumbnails for the first 2 chapters by Wednesday, and it’ll be a pretty busy schedule to get the final art done by May. The first chapter will be done and printed in minis by ECCC, so if you’re going, you can read it there!

I think it’s time to ink with a brush, even if it’s still messy. I plan to work at bigger dimensions to minimize problems with things like the face in panel 2. Flat grayscale because I’ve grown to like that this year, and it prints oh so much more nicely than dithered dots. P.S., I have no idea what’s going on in this page. I just wanted to draw a variety of character placements and backgrounds!


  • Looks wonderful. I may have missed it if you posted the answer earlier but, what’s the story about?

  • Thank you! The story is about a nerdy/tomboyish girl in a country based on pre-WW1 France. There will be biplanes 8D

  • Biplanes?! Sold!

  • Good luck!

    For reference, you may want to buy a cheap DVD of “Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines.” A cute movie with lots of biplane footage.
