This one is a sequel to the first Connecticut strip, "Connecticut's Move" posted earlier this month. I had fun playing with this idea. I owe that amazing pose in the last panel to my friend, David Oliver, and his doggie. I owe the bi-plane idea to Rawn.
I had a lot of issues with David's head. I kept making him look like an alien.
The bricks in that panel were monotonous and my pen started to die towards the end of inking them. However, I really enjoyed the way the half-dead pen's lines came out. The texture turned out better than a more functional pen.
Having learned my lesson from illustrating the stone slabs in my Henry "Box" Brown comic, I actually searched for the brick's vanishing point and illustrated them using a typical perspective grid.
I suspected that the bricks' line work would make the unconscious birds difficult to read, so I inked the bricks separate from the rest of the panel and recolored them burgundy.
