Hola Night Owls & Early Birds

Had a nice talk with my mom a few days ago about keeping things fun while cartooning.

While working out the compositional draft for tonight’s offering, I played around with repositioning the dialogue bubbles.  This also opened up the opportunity for being less strict on how I penciled  the dialogue–basically no rulers–which added more of a free-flow feel.  You’ll see in a second, but I think it ups the fun level, as well as brings a new energy to the cartoon.

And speaking of fun, a little lizard darted into my room this afternoon as I was opening the door.  I tried to coax it out, but no go.  I guess the lizard’s sleeping over tonight.

Hopefully I don’t wake up in the morning with it sitting on my nose.

Until mañana . . .

“Let’s still be careful out there.”
