I decided to go for a splash page here, with text as dense as this at least there's some eye-candy to balance it. I try to condense the dialogue as much as possible (well, actually, it's more in the way of making it as efficient as possible, but you know what I mean), but hey - I'm not making picture books y'know :-D
The scenery was inspired by the images that lingered in my mind from the recent attack on a toll station in Serbia... because of the Kosovo conflict. The reason I write fiction is because it can do more justice to reality than nonfiction (although I may deny the truth of this statement later on).
I drew this page while staying in Austria for a week, far far away from any 'net access. The compulsion to check for comments and mails never really goes away, but it's still veeeerrrryyy relaxing every once in a while.
BTW, I forgot to take my rulers with me, so the fact that I didn't have to draw panels was quite convenient!
wow-what an amazing page! I feel the same about fiction portraying reality better...sometimes nonfiction masquerades as reality, when in fact it's all fiction...
*dies* why are you so GOOOOOOOD?? your attention to detail is just bewildering to my little mind..haha I'd get so frustrated if I had to do that...you have much patience my friend! *faints*
hmmmmmm theres something brewing here. big war coming?
no monopolies? ah but its such a fun game :)
takashinakamura: Thanks a lot... reality invades fiction, and vice versa. Nonfiction may try to mirror reality... but in the end, mirrors are the biggest liars.
TacoTotes: It may have to do with being on vacation... I probably have less patience when being at home :-)
tRickityHouses: Right on both accounts, I'm afraid ^_^
