This comic was alot of things at the time. I'd been drawing in a really tight brush style for some time when I began this, and I wanted a break. In addition to that, I'd been reading alot of Christophe Blain and Joann Sfar, both of whom have what appear to be "messy" drawing styles, when in fact both men are drawing in a very technically loose but compositionally tight manner. Everything in their panels is clear- there is no muddiness- but the hatching and linework seems to break every rule of inking. I longed to try this, as an antedote to what I felt was my tendency towards over-neatness.
In the beginning pages, I stumbled on the inking alot, but as it went on, I think I got the hang of it. Since this was meant mto be an experiment, I'm engouraging advanced critique on this one. (Jon C, this means you!)
