Strip #41

September 10, 2005

My favorite worm out of the group portrayed here is the one that’s all flattened out on the pavement. It looks like he’s trying to eat the sidewalk.

It took me a couple tries to figure out how I wanted to draw this strip. I wanted it to be one panel, but the angle was a challenge. So I figured out the solution, and made it a sort of “turning" perspective. Take two fingers and make a little viewing area (a small box, about the size of a normal panel) and move slowly across the panel. It’s supposed to seem like a camera gradually turning to look the other direction.

Or it could just be a turn in the sidewalk, however you want to look at it.
