Welcome back friends to the official Sunnyville blog. I have some more comics pages up this week. It seems that Rusty is now going to get an official Sunnyville welcome thanks to Sam and her family!
The mayor of Sunnyville, Owen Groton (a kangaroo and former cruiserweight boxing champion), is giving one of his long-winded speeches. I don’t know what his wife, Sheila (the kangaroo whispering in his ear) said to him, but it got him to stop talking.
Again, in that first panel, I’m establishing spatial depth via use of the technique of repoussoir. Check out some of my earlier posts to find out about that (or just look it up). Notice the patriarchs in the lower left panel – Goro of the Tanuki family, Lars of the Eftirmaturs, and Matthew of the Talbot family.
I clearly see that Sam is going to waste no time in introducing Rusty to her friends. Oh yes – we finally get to see Rusty’s father without his porkpie hat on. This page also marks the first appearance of Sam’s father, Thompson. He did change from my original designs.
Well, we’ll have to wait until next Saturday to see how the introductions go. Feel free to comment or ask questions here. Subscribe via RSS feed or email if you haven’t already. Plus be sure to look out for the Sunnyville Sketchbook soon. It should be available through Indy Planet and Comics Monkey.
Plus I finally submitted the master files for Sunnyville episode 3 to the printers. Stay tuned, friends, for more details.
