First Page; Signing in Decatur/Atlanta

Woo! I'm FINALLY working on pages. The first scene ended up being a little bit longer than I expected (16 pages), and the first three pages or so I had to get used to not being able to "fake" a composition by throwing rigging into the empty spots. Composing shots this time around without clouds, ropes, masts etc is a real pain, but it'll hopefully make me better at what I do.

I'm spending a lot more time on the inks.

Here's the first page - click it to be able to actually see it. The modern dad just told his kids that "it all started with a sandstorm..."

On another note to anyone in the Atlanta area, I'll be doing a signing at my favorite kid's bookstore in the world, Little Shop of Stories, which happens to be just down the street from my house. If you've had a hard time getting a hold of the book (I know that a few places in town have run out occasionally) then this would be an ideal time to pick it up. I'll be doing sketches, too. Friday, March 20, 3:30-4:30.

Ah, I'll miss the signing! I'll only just then be getting off work. Sad day. Still need to get my hands on Vengeance.
