In which Gideon comes home.

A good soundtrack for this page is "Schlum Rooli" by Glynis Jones, which is from the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop. What a freaky little song. I was listening to it a lot while doing panel 1.

This page is the first one to be done entirely without Photoshop. I inked and colored most of it in Affinity Photo, but I painted the house in panel 2 using Autodesk Sketchbook on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A. I wanted to see if I could color at least part of my comic while I was out of town for a few days. I'm happy with how it turned out.

Once again, this was a surprisingly emotional page for me to work on. I've been waiting YEEEAARRRSSSSS to draw this scene, along with the ones that follow this page. I've never painted Gideon's property in color before in my life until now. I based Panel 1 on the first drawing of Gideon's house I ever made. It's already 10 years old! Can you believe that? I was only 15! Now you all get to see what I've had in my head.

Man this page looks GREAT. It fits in seamlessly with the Photoshop-drawn pages.
Can't wait to see the inside of Gid's abode...

Thank you!! I decided to swallow my pride and sneak some tree and cloud stamp brushes into my rendering. Didn’t want to make it so obvious, but they’re in there.

I’m looking forward to seeing the inside of his house too, tbh. It’s a weird, dusty time capsule.
