Today and yesterday’s cartoon is a bit different in that they are meant to be read in sequence. They tell a story between the two, but I feel they can work on their own as well. I’ll let you be the judge. It’s something I’m going to try. Normally you see stories being written in multiple panels, well I’m going to try in the up and coming weeks to tell a funny story but still in my single frame format. I know the following is just a story that is told in two panels, but it is was this idea to have two images tell the beginning and the end that started this whole journey to begin with . Feel free to add your own comments or thoughts about the captions and please let me know what you think. It’s fun to get your emails and comments whether it be via Facebook or Rackafracka.com.
My favorite part about the panel above is the guy cocking the shotgun. He’s clearly not interested in hearing what might be the next trick from this one trick pony. I thought this panel was shocking enough (but strangely not the most shocking that I had thought of and had drawn in my sketchbook), but the 2nd panel gives the above panel its conclusion which I felt made it really funny. I don’t know about you, but this cracked me up and that is all that matters.
I’m particularly proud of the moon light. It’s took me a few tries on some different layers to get it to where I was happy. I didn’t start out with the thought about doing a night scene, but as I was coloring the first panel I thought that it would be funny to show the 2nd panel as if its later that day or to at least show that time had past.
