Artist Notes

My first commissioned project! Written by Bobby Crosby, who was quite a prolific short webcomic story writer at the time. This and most of his other stories were written as movie pitches, so it has a very film-like length and structure. His most popular story, "Marry Me", was eventually adapted into a film.

I was having a bit of an experimental phase when I worked on it, as the relatively short length meant I could afford to try something different without accidentally committing to an art style I would grow to dislike. I think it still stands up okay now, and it helped me to realise that a full painterly-style comic was something I was definitely now capable of doing.

It's currently still available to read on the Keenspot website, with print copies fairly hard to find.
