Recently got approval to share a few pages from the Joe is Japanese
graphic novel that I've been drawing for Humoring the Fates
(that's the 2D animation studio
where I spend my days) this past year.
I liked this page a good bit, but I think I dropped the ball with the lyrics right at the end there, they obscure the action of Koga's cigarette flip. I'm not fretted about it so much, 'cause the final book is in color and I know the painter will color hold the text or something, and then the lines of the action will stand out more effectively, but I feel like I failed a bit if I couldn't figure out a way to do it so that it worked just as well in plain B&W.
Funny faces are fun.
