Another little detail that I had missed after living so many years up in Alaska, one that recalls childhood memories of many a hike with my father: coming across old stone walls in the Catskill and Allegheny woods. There are some interesting examples scattered about Acadia as well, aside from the faux-folksyness of the Rockefeller estates.

I tried first to fart around with random textures using the computer, then at the last minute (an hour before the minicomic went to press in fact) used the reference shots of rocks for another piece ("Glacier Erratic") to fill in the blanks, as it were. In the end I think it doesn't mesh with the drawing and winds up looking like a cheap hack-job at digitally cutting & pasting.


  1. If you want to see some good examples of use, overuse, and abuse of computer-infused textures, you should browse the Doctor Fun archives:

  2. Ha - AWEsome - thanks for turning me onto that archive. Those textures and colors tip the panels into a surreal experience, like Gary Larson + mushrooms. And besides, anyone who actually does a Sleestak gag wins in my book.
