Going home

Sunday, 09 November, 2008

My goodness, I can barely remember the genesis of this project. (*Goes and looks through email archives.*) Oh yeah, December 2006 is when I first asked Fish if he was keen to work on a four-page comic with me. It was going to be for Pulp Crufiction #2 but life got in the way and we didn't make the deadline. Anyway, when Dean put out the call for Pulp Crucifiction #3, we thought we really had to get it done, and enlisted the help of the immensely talented Paul to do the inking for us (while I stood on the sidelines and wrung my hands helplessly as all art stuff is totally out of my league).

After many hours and much agonising and to-and-fro-ing and hard work by my fabulous collaborators, here is the finished product (click for bigger images):

This was my first experience of collaboration and I really enjoyed it. I particularly loved discovering what the others brought to the table ...
