These are really wonderful - and this is just your warm-up sketch for each day??

Thanks! Yeah, it takes a whole lot less time than the full-colour Vern & Lettuce! And there are a lot of little 'oops' things, but I'm trying not to worry about them too much unless they make it hard to read.

Well I think these are about the standard of my 'proper' pages! If you don't mind me asking, how long does it take you to finish a page of Vern and Lettuce?

WAY too long!

I haven't actually worked out the time yet, because it's so broken up into chunks: over-caffienated scribbling for a basic script, finalising the script, doing the more legible pencil rough, doing the ink rough, then the long colouring process.

I kind of wish I'd hit on a simpler method, but I guess I like the effect. But it's a relief to do simpler comics like Airship, where I just do a very rough pencil, ink it and add tone in an hour or so. How long did Super Animal Adventure Squad take you per page?

Likewise, it's very hard to say how long a page takes - I do my pages in bits and pieces, and sometimes I'll draw several pages in a row and then colour several in a row, so it's not even like I am working on one page solidly from start to finish! Worse still my computer is crawling at a snail's pace these days, so while colouring in should be a fairly quick process I seem to spend an interminable amount of time waiting for my computer to cacth up with what I'm asking it to do!

I think maybe, _maybe_, I could do a page completely from start to finish in two days if I just sat and worked solidly on it - but I'm not sure I'm physically capable of going that long without being distracted!

Oh no, slow compooters are the pits!

Yeah, two days sounds about right, two full-on days, working well into the evenings. But with all the back-and-forths, it never works like that. (Does the fez help with concentration? Maybe I'll get one.)

When I don my sacred fez I am imbued with the concentration power of 10 comic artists. Unless I get distracted playing with the little tassle.

I'm really enjoying this! What are the plans for it?

Thanks! We'll see where it goes, but we're planning to print it out at some point as a mini comic.

Fancy that! ;-)
