The latest Alice








Here's a preview of the first strip I've inked since circa 19-aught-12. It's a Sunday page and it took me 14 hours of concentrated effort just to do the head. Note the generous slathering of white-out to disguise the places where things went south (this was supposed to be Petey, I don't want to talk about it).

Naw, I was kidding. That head is less than a inch tall and the whole figure wasn't even two inches. I draw pretty small.

Love the look on her face, Richard.

If you're going to use that much white-out, maybe you should consider painting over a black page with white-out, then just scratching your drawings into it.
