Martin specified that the dashboard of the car should have more detail to it rather than just being a featureless counter like it typically is. Enjoyed playing around with it... Remember when you were a kid and sitting in the front-seat meant you were eye-level with the radio and AC and stuff, and it felt like you were in a spaceship? Once you learn to drive you totally stop thinking about it like that. It's just stuff you're programmed not to look at 'cause you gotta keep your eyes on the road.

Yeah, not much to say on this one; Alex comes back to the bathroom from this page....

Graffiti was a pain in the ass, due to the way we're thinning lines out now. That and I had to make sure it was more-or-less consistent with the last page, just with even more stuff written on.

Funny, then I think of bathroom graffiti I think of this one time in college where I went to the bathroom on the third floor of the psych department. Someone had scribbled the Slenderman logo on all of the walls. I walked in one day, turned on the lights, and after a second or so walked right back out, determined to hold it in.

Or that other time I wrote "I draw a Webcomic called Blue Blood Heroes" on the wall then came back a few days later and found someone had written "Your comic looks like a fifth-grader scribbling with MS Paint." Then at some point another person crossed out "fifth-grader" and wrote in "third-grader." Spent the rest of the day deeply depressed.

Okay, weird tangent. Yeah, got nothing here. sorry.

.... See, now I'm just wondering what, if any, graffiti is written in the Howlend Center bathrooms.

Kind of funny, delayed commenting on this for a few minutes to finish coloring one that's coming a little bit from now. So kind of thoughts are more on that one than on this.

Yeah, I think it kind of shows that the Christina thing was supposed to be addressed in the previous chapter and there just wasn't really an opening for it that felt natural. Think it works though, plays into the general mood of this chapter. Kind of disconnected from the actual events in it though.

I don't know how much we'll see this bathroom in the future. Wanted it for the callback here but that graffiti is rather time-consuming. And I can't think of much reason to actually show Alex changing in any upcoming chapters while this one and Sound Alive had actual reasons for showing it.

Funny thing, realized coloring this that this is the third chapter in a row we see Alex having a conversation while in the bathroom. He really is a girl.

I don't think there is any because Jake would never tolerate that, interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.

Heh, true, what I was thinking.
