Sneak Preview Of The Next Rashy Rabbit

Shhh. Don’t tell anyone. Here is a super secret sneak peek of what’s happening to your pal and mine, Rashy Rabbit in his still-untitled 7th issue.

I am about halfway through the thumbnailing stageĀ  which just means that I have to write the script, blow up the thumbnails, trace the thumbnails in blue non repro pencil, inkĀ  them, scan the pages and then print the comic. *sigh* Why do I bother?

Anyway, I am surprised it’s taken me this long to draw a comics with a character lost at sea.

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.

  1. Y’ really think I should, David? I often do feel like comics take me far too long, and I need to find a more quicker way to get them out. Sometimes that spark is missing on the final page too. I dunno though, it might be too loose.

  2. Well, I like the crooked wiggly panel borders, for sure. It might not work to literally print from the thumbnails, but maybe ink them at that size instead of enlarging them. But don’t let me tell you what to do, I just thought the cartooning looked really nice in those thumbnails

  3. Really, that’s not a bad idea. I feel most comfortable drawing small. I don’t work with a brush, so inking small makes my lines actually look better.
    It would save me a lot of time, days and days, even. I usually pencil all this stuff again then start inking.

    You have a pretty similar process, don’t you?

    Do you write scripts first or do you just start drawing?

  4. I write out the text in my sketchbook, but don’t do much drawing. Sometimes I do a thumbnail of the page on a 5 inch square of paper (cd tray liners–we end up with lots of pads of them at work) but not always. Doing a second round of penciling seems like a waste of time. When I started using one of those pentel pocket brushes things went a lot faster, and it can do small…

  5. Yeah, it is a waste of time, and a crutch of some sort to pencil again. I guess I do it due to some insecurities about my draftsmanship. So basically, I am a big pussy.
