Smithson Thus Far... ·


Shaenon: Continuing from last week's thumbnail exhibit (and doesn't that sound delightful?), here's what a page of SH strips looks like before inking. The drawing of Unity at top right is so clean because I liked her expression in the thumbnail sketch so much I just lightboxed it onto the final.

I wish I'd kept the thumbnail for the second strip, because I wrote about a half-dozen alternate final lines for Unity, like "Oh boy! Free towels!" and "Oh boy! A complimentary copy of USA Today!"

Okay, one more page of sketches for the road. My friend Konstantin, who has been a really good sport about becoming the namesake of a hilarious cartoon Russian, challenged me to draw Julie at three different ages. So here she is at her current age, ten years younger, and ten years older. Also, for some reason, Tip eating a banana.

Sorry about the food stains. We were at this Turkish meat-pie place. Later Konstantin drew Spider-Man in a Speedo. It was that kind of night.

And, yes, it's kind of unfortunate that Young Julie is about to shoot her oblivious future self.

Channing: One of the frustrating things about being a writer exclusively is that you can't just knock off a quick short story on your placemat while you're waiting for your food to come. Well, you can, but it's just not the same, y'know?

John Campbell (jcampbel) says: Well, if you've got to shoot your self from a different time period, that's the way to do it. If your future self shoots your past self, you end up with paradox all over the carpet.
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Nice sketches! It's interesting to see how the comic is developed.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: Future Julie Rome looks a bit dazed.  No, wait, that's impossible.  We all know Rome wasn't killed in a daze.
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: Poor Julie's got it rough, being right-handed and left-eyed. That always makes for awkward shooting positions.
John Breckenridge (jbrecken) says: Is that Dr Lee in the palimpsest?
Joshua Holden (doctorhook) says: @John:  I think so.  Also, I can see Spiderman's head, but I think the Speedo is behind Tip....
Rob (rrreed) says: @Tiff — Tell me about it. After a couple of semesters of riflery in college, however, I learned how to mentally switch the eye I wanted to dominate my field of view. Squinting is strongly discouraged in target shooting due to the muscle movements having a tendency to jerk the aiming eye slightly.
Prodigal (prodigal) says: Obviously, somebody tipped Young Julie off to the fact that Older Julie is about to do something heinous.
James Rice (jhrice) says: John & Joshua,  Yeah, that's Dr. Lee back there, but you really don't want to see the rest.   "My eyes!  The goggles do no-sing!"
