Here is the final page! I took the cut out of the bones (shown in earlier posts) and glued them onto the page with the previously drawn bones. The end result is as much collage as it is drawing.
The problem I had with the original page was that there was too much black on the right. It felt like this should really be at the top. There was also a fair amount of uniformity in the design of the original bone mass. I wanted to break that up a little bit.

The reason I'm showing you this process is because there are quite a few pages within my comic that have been constructed in this manner. I'll take one that totally failed and cut it up. Then, I'll take those pieces and construct a new page out of it. Or perhaps, I'll augment a previously existing page, such as this. Occasionally, I'll create a collage out of the pieces, then compose a drawing based off of it. So, it looks like a collage, but really isn't.

So there you are!

    We just launched Columbus bookoo - a massive online yard sale for Columbus and surrounding areas. Thousands of people buying and selling used stuff from each other, in a family-friendly way. :) Here's the website:

    We're getting the word out to some local bloggers, and would like to send you a free bookoo t-shirt (no strings attached!). If you would like a free t-shirt, will you send me an email at with your address and shirt size? I'll get it out to you right away.
