Moth & Tanuki in Oztaku 1.3 

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketOn Monday I picked up a couple of copies of OzTaku #1.3 from Borders. It features the longest Moth & Tanuki story so far - an 8 pager, the first of two parts. Jill says it's the best thing I've ever done, which is possibly right. The story almost wrote itself and does manage to be a bit textured and nuanced, while still being funny (important!). It fills in some backstory, but also moves the whole series forward, with the emphasis more on Moth (so, a nice counterpoint to the Mania series).

From an art point of view I worked as starkly black-and-white as possible, using contrasting lines (particularly horizontals and verticals). The moires on the scan are where I've used screentones, again limiting myself to broad textures (as far as I'm concerned, screentones count as dotty b&w textures, not as muddy greys).

Available soon from the usual Oztaku distributors.

Congratulations- it must be so gratifying to see your work in print. Cute little raccoon... just waiting for it to become rabid & bite her... :D
Congratulations on s job obviously well-done!

Heh, my old neighbor used to have sheep which always got out. I'd look out the window to see them grazing in my backyard. I never minded! *G*

sheep- is a favorite of mine. i would always stop and take pictures and look at them, touch them everytime i go in the countryside.
