I do believe that is the most violent coloring book I have ever seen.

I just noticed a simple detail from the SPACEPORT page that has me
shaking my head in admiration.

That Byrne fella is good.

Is Wallace playing a game of "How to Keep an Idiot in Suspense"?

Okay -- I'll ask! What's the detail??

Ha!

You probably won't think it's a big deal, JB.

I was referring to the way Ellie is stopped and leaning to the side in the same
way a person actually riding a bike often is.
That small detail makes the
whole page more "real" to me.

Colored pencil.
I think I'm going to play with 262's colors in other pictures.
Hard to follow Peter's work and seeing Ogrady's but these have been vert therapeutic!


p.s. I've learned that neon orange does not scan well, the strip of hair on Eliza did not turn out.

Another great page, Doug.

This page was a bit of a killer (and the next one is even harder!!).

Peter, this may be your best one yet!

I just realized that we are looking at the neck (and underneath the chin) of one
of the natives up top.

The tricky ALLIES page is still a work in progress so I skipped on and finished HOMECOMING. 



It was basically all finished, but then I made a couple of ill-advised final touches, one of which was a shadow line on the robot that immediately didn't look right. When I went back and checked in an earlier picture of 262, I realised I'd misinterpreted what I was looking at and I'd done messed up. No control Z though!

Thanks for the kind words, Doug.

Just one more page remains; my brush has literally fallen apart though. Will have to visit the art store.

When I was a wee wee lad, the one thing I could draw was overlapping metal bands.

The reasons I could draw them, and make them look good, was JB and George Perez. Drawing pictures just like that one above. the one bit of art I could do.

Beautiful, Peter!

Colored pencil.
I'm going to hand over the book to my daughter for a while.

Well, I was lazy all year and thought I could stumble upon a copy at Barnes & Noble or elsewhere, but I'm finally biting the bullet and ordering a copy today, as a belated Christmas present to myself.

And with 3 kids around the house, I have enough markers, pencils, water colors, crayons, pastels, etc. up the wah-zoo to choose from!

Looking forward to this.

Quite the fun adventure yarn, and a breezy read, JB... really enjoyed the straightforward narrative, unfussy prose and of course, the gorgeous artwork.  Already getting some ideas as to how to tackle some colors!

I'm a year late, but great work.

(Takes longer than I thought, Wallace... hoping to finally finish the cover page tonight, and attempt to post tomorrow.  At this rate, I'll be done with the entire book by Spring of 2019!)

Damn, that's good, Jim!

Now my pencils and markers are giving me second thoughts!  Dammit...
