The Rest Of That Dose Page

The bottom half of the "Fun page" that ran in Dose a couple of years ago. Again, this is from the raw board, before Sarah cleaned it up and fixed the wonky lettering and erased the lines around the paste-downs, et al.

Yes, I'm a dork, I still often physically paste down corrections, even though Sarah can fix that quickly and cleanly on the magic box. Sometimes we do it that way, sometimes I get compulsive and just haul out the rubber cement or the glue-stick, especially if I'm working late and everyone's asleep. I just need the page to look "finished", which is why I also still fill in the black areas by hand, and don't resort to duplicating backgrounds or panels digitally very often. If we're really short on time for a magazine job or what have you, I will try to plan on using the computer to help speed things up, but it's hard for me to let go of my dinosaur ways. I have stopped lettering white on black as I used to, Sarah reverses my lettering on the computer when I want that effect, but I used to hand letter that stuff in white ink and, man, what a nightmare. It dissolved on the pages pretty quickly, too. Never again.

Anyway, yeah, some gags from a few years ago.
