Gah, sorry this is running late a few minutes, forgot to stop adjusting the time for Daylight Savings.

But yeah, this isn't really the easiest page to comment on, especially given as scripted it was basically just, "Hey, Adam, draw stuff." Still, I am rather happy with it, did want to kind of bring this leg of the plot to a conclusion with a nice moment between Laura and her dad.

I really wanted to do some more involved flashbacks during all of this, but it was kind of just a victim of pacing. This chapter has been a definite learning experience for me in terms of assessing better whether a subplot's needed or not, since doing it again the two stories of this chapter probably would've been spread across separate chapters. Which is pretty much what happened with the ideas for the next couple funny enough.

Either way, few more pages left in the chapter. Though since Alex doesn't show up from here and the next chapter is focused on him I'll go ahead and throw out the title of the next one - chapter 22 is Into the Blue.

Heheh... Yeah, not much for me to say on this one either, but wanted to really draw in some homey images that the audience could immeidately identify. What I was going for was Mama-Ropun telling her husband she's pregnant, their first meeting, and teaching Ropun piano. That last picture has Ropun dressed as a character from The Crucible (The play she was holdign in the flashbacks), with that just being a moment where she tells her Mom she got the part. As you can see it's close to the end in that one, given how she's been undergoing chemo.

I dunno, despite giving the entirity of the picture to me, this still felt sort of personal coming from Martin. We've both lost close family members and felt the effects of it. Given that I feel a little bad I didn't try to draw deeper from my own life or something, but I was going for moments that I felt would be precious to THESE characters....
