Prologue: Page 9I don't know why, but I love panel 5 so much, I even made it my phone background! I'm just really proud of how it turned out, and poor Louis's jumpy expression makes me laugh every time. Public speaking anxiety is a real problem, though - it can be super stressful to have to read stuff out in class, so I tried to capture Louis's pit-of-the-stomach feeling through my colors in this page. Poor Louis. I've given him the least dramatic introduction of any character ever.
Whose phone do you think is ringing in the last panel? Is there every ANY good reason to trust someone who has two phones? (Probably not, in my opinion).
Fun history fact: Did you guys know that the reason we call signatures John Hancocks is because his was the biggest name on the American declaration of independence? Of course, in this comic it means something different, which you'll find out more about next week...but it's a fun play-on-words, anyway.
Who am I kidding, though - it's pretty obvious who's phones are ringing, as we've only met two fonts so far. Oh, well! See you next week to find out officially - and find out a bunch of other interesting things, too.
I love the rotary phones in the last panel, they're drawn really well. The John Hancock label is intriguing, too. I'm look forward to the next installment. :D
I'm so happy you're excited for next week's page! I am too :)
I'm glad I was able to express his embarrassment!
I'm glad that you're keeping up with the comic! Next week we'll have more font action, too.
