Jet Lag Blues

I have worked my way up the evolutionary ladder of post-jet-flight consciousness to at least Neanderthal; tomorrow I may be fully human again. I did get a start on the indesign files for Spam and the Sasquatch today; and yesterday and today I’ve been cleaning up the scans of the pages in Photoshop, which can be done with half-funcioning mental facilities. Which gave me an idea — tomorrow is Saturday, traditionally (on this blog, anyway) technique-of-the-week day — I’ll post some progress shots of one of my pages to show the kind of things I do digitally to get the original art ready for publication as a graphic novel! For now, here’a another teaser panel from the story:

Spam contemplates his favourite ice cream joint. There really is an Elevated Ice Cream shop in Port Townsend, this world's version of Port Deception, where the Spam stories are set, but as far as I know it doesn't really look anything like this. Next time I'm down there visiting, I need to go have an ice cream there!

  1. It looks a little like this though it’s not up on pilings and the deck is only half of the back end of the store. But close, otherwise! Yes, we will have to go to Elevated sometime while you’re here so you can show Julie, the owner, the comic. I’ve told her about it already, so your fame precedes you.

    • Wow, if it looks even a little like it I’m amazed! I couldn’t find any pictures of the deck side of the store (lots of street views and interiors), and the pilings are from some pictures of PT’s downtown taken offshore somewhere. And of course the rock Spammy is sitting on is completely fictitious. But It is, after all, an alternate universe.

I'd love to know — what do you think about this?
