moses jones--page seven

i’m not sure why moses jones is smoking a cigar…but she’s drinking whiskey, so i gave her a cigar. then i realized she’s at the table with one of her housemates who is pregnant (lucy)…so now i feel guilty about her smoking. maybe in a world with zombies & cannibals, one doesn’t worry as much about the effects of second hand smoke…. she does, however, not smoke in front of her kids. if for no other reason, because she told them their dad was out looking for cigarettes for the past 13 months.

since i start & finish with ink (& paint with ink in the middle) i have to incorporate any accidents into my drawing. i like the challenge of this. my pages are never perfect, but they are a lot of fun to do. i really hope i get better at this at least by page 100. i guess we will see. i always thought it was fun to go back & see what the initial sketches & first pages looked like with other comics. someday i will be able to do that with my own.
