Thursday is the new Sunday – Make like a tree..

I like the gag in the Sunday rerunning on Gocomics.com today but I’m not so sure about the way I laid it out. I needed a close-up of Bo looking at the stapled leaf, but maybe it needed to be seen in the establishing scene as well.

The unseen-until-now drop panel (above) is a mess. The falling leaves aren’t the shape of leaves – it looks like it’s raining hot dogs*. The concept with Bo at the bottom was a white silhouette knocked out of the leaves. I remember thinking that it didn’t “read” as Bo so I added some shading. That ended up making it look like Bo was covered with snow.

* not that that’s bad thing
