A New Beginning...

A day late and a dollar short; such is the life of a cartoonist.  With Tuesday’s update we see the Geek’s traveling to their new abode with Clayton narrating the ride.  For me this was a fun strip to do. No only was it a multi-panel but I got to experiment with a few different effects including trying to mimic the opening scene of Star Wars: A New Hope including the title crawl and even the start screen for the DVD.  It won’t be long before that first panel makes me feel old when kids don’t recognize it. Just remember, when Star Wars Episode one, the first of the prequels came out for home video, George Lucas was still refusing to put it on DVD because he wasn’t sure about this new technology. I bought it on VHS. Feel old? I am old. The strip is a bit blurry because I didn’t have a higher resolution one saved. The original strip was saved at 72 DPI and most of the published strips are at 96 DPI. I upscaled it to make it readable but it left it a bit blurry.
