Here’s page three and it’s the first with a mixed media approach to lettering. I appreciated the feedback from last week’s page and I even tried to act on it. I hand lettered Buddy’s dialogue to give more of a spoken feel. I kept the typed format for Klink because she’s a hologram projection with a computer voice so I justified that it shouldn’t feel “spoken” so much as produced. I like the ideal of the combination, but I think that I might write the words on a seperate page next time so that I can move them around if I need to or even edit them. I changed the dialogue for Klink as I placed it, but it would be really hard to do that for the handwritten stuff.
Overall I had fun drawing this page, but it has given me a new appreciation of well written books. I wrote and rewrote and rewrote trying to cut down exposition and I even dropped off a couple of gags because I literally couldn’t figure out where to put them on the page (or in the flow of the narrative). No spoilers, but next week’s page is a lot fewer words and lot more action.
