Another color, multi-panel post that looks like I was going for a Sunday comic feel, but, really, this is just me sketching and drawing and coloring items in.
I would put the age of this one and the previous one, Sketchbook 0003, at eleven years ago or so. Not much has changed since then, other than the fact that I don't draw as much as I would like nowadays.
This is NOT a multi-panel "sunday" strip, but, rather, an exercise in characterization. This is one of those rare panels where you see Nathan's long-suffering girlfriend Christine. The best part of the whole post was getting this to work:
Man, that took me seven or eight minutes, tops.
I really, really liked this line, and I couldn't resist using it again in a sketchbook post.
This was drawn in a barracks, somewhere south of Pyeongtaek, South Korea, in the heat of a nasty summer. Was it really all that long ago? Seems like eleven years or so, and I've forgotten it already.
This is the perfect example of what's in my sketchbooks--something half-baked and not quite good enough for a regular comic.
However, in order to get a lot of this stuff out there, which is really what we're dealing with in the modern world anyway, I'm going to start a new series of items that are sketchbook quality. This is the first such post like that.
The regular comics, which are coming at a much slower rate than I would like, will be interspersed with these posts.
