These are two pages from a pitch for a comic my friend Stephen Pellnat and I are hoping to do, called “The Last Slice of Mushroom Pie.”
It comes out in November, and this is the first time I’ve seen it on paper.
I’M SO EXCITED!
This sort of thing is surprisingly fun to do. And surprisingly time-consuming, as well.
A page by myself, Adrian Wallace on backgrounds, and Jake Richmond on colors. Adrian and Jake really brought the awesome in by barrelfulls for this page!
I’ve left the word balloons off to avoid spoilers. But it’s a shame, because one of my favorite word balloon shapes in the whole book is on this page!
Here’s a scene that I ended up 90% rewriting, between a very small Mirka, years ago, and her Mom. I like this scene, but what I replaced it with fits better into the larger story.
These are what I call my “stick figure layouts,” where I don’t do any actual drawing, but I figure out the final script and the layout.
