HAPPY AT 90 MILES » New page, after a battle.

New page, after a battle.

page_33_final
Here’s Jorge back in his cell, contemplating the news his mother gave him. A pretty moody scene, it was fun to use lots of black, which I don’t do enough.

This page gave me a lot of trouble since I started doubting the original layout I had planned. I was worried that the transition from the visitor’s hall to Jorge’s cell wouldn’t read well, thinking that an establishing shot of the cellblock was needed. Yet including that made the layout too busy and cramped. Then I imagined a two page spread, with a “camera movement” through three panels down the hallway, ending on Jorge. I even blocked out the movement in the Sketchup model of the cellblock before realizing I was going off track.

A quick consultation with friend and writer of comics Brian Reed confirmed that the original layout was the best. What a relief to finally put pen to paper without all those doubts.
