cartoonheroes said: Hey Pascalle!! SUPER STOKED FOR WILDE LIFE!! AAA! I'm wondering how you approach scripting/thumbnailing? Do you do all your script first and thumbnail after? A mixture of both? Do you have to end up making changes to the script once you get into the visualizing, and you realize things might not quite work? Or the pacing might be strange? Let me pick your marvellous brain!
Oh, your flattery will get you everywhere! <3 xoxo
For me, I script everything out first, and generally a couple passes of rewrites before I consider it “written.” I like to write stories that are really interconnected, so sometimes I get to the end of a chapter and then totally rewrite the beginning so that it works better. I think of my first pass as the script sketch and the final draft as the drawing.
More on making comics after the cut.
great creative advice from Pascalle
My birthday is this Friday. (This is not a ploy for attention. This is a story about cake.)
Conversation with my mother about Friday’s planned cookout:
My mom: So we’re having ribs. Can you think of anything else you want?
Me: I don’t know. Cake?
My mom: Cake?
Me: Yeah, cake. We were going to have cake, weren’t we?
My mom: Oh.
Sometimes I just don’t get my mom. No cake? I mean, I could technically have cake whenever I want because I’m a grown up with my own money and cooking skills but I don’t really have cake very often. Apparently, I need to stop banking on that one day a year when I’m guaranteed cake.
