Finished For Now

The crazy page from the newest OilCan Drive booked has been inked and finished as much as possible by hand. Now I need to trim it, scan it into the computer, and do a little bit more work on it. I doubt this page will have any word balloons or lettering on it. Honestly, even if it did need words, I don't know where I'd fit them.

I know this page has taken me a lot longer than it should have but hopefully the final results will be worth the extra time. It should be dropping on the OilCan Drive web-comic site on Friday, March 28th.

And, just because I didn't want to drive myself too crazy with one page this week I did a quick doodle of Mr. Mucho for the new edition of the first issue of OilCan Drive I'll be putting up on Amazon later this year.

I've always wanted to do a book where the first page had an image and a "this book belongs to: xxxxxxxx" kind of thing. Earlier this week, while thinking about that idea, I thought Mr. Mucho would be the perfect character to put on that front page introducing the reader to the book. Plus, because it's in the OilCan Drive world, I thought a giant pair of goggles would fit perfectly.

Here are a few photos of the pencil sketch and the inked piece. Now, like the page above, this needs to be scanned into the computer and played with a bit. I can't wait to add some zip-a-tone effects my favorite little rag doll.

I hope you're all doing great. This month has started off really well for me and I hope you're all doing just as well!
