Death of a Teddy Bear

Or was it "24 Weeks of Sequentials pt. V"?

A little trouble deciding a title for this weeks post. With a prolific third panel this week it was hard to decide. Well... let's get right to it then... here's page 5 of "The Cutting Edge"

Going to keep it nice and short this week. In case you've missed them, here's links to the previous pages of The Cutting Edge.

As with every Tuesday be sure to stop over at Ryan Claytor's website where he's posted his next page of And Then One Day#9. www.elephanteater.com. Ryan's really knocked this weeks page out of the park with his illustration.

Until next week,

I really like how you're experimenting with unconventional panel layouts (in both this page and the last). The structure ties-in well to the storytelling and has a surprisingly intuitive reading order, despite their unconventional nature. Nice work, Jay.

Have I mentioned I'm glad you're back doing sequentials? :)

Thanks Ryan, and Thanks Ryan!

First one for the kind words and the second for the initial challenge of this 24 week thing. It's good to be doing sequentials again.

This page was a blast to create, especially the broken feeling that's evoked from the panel layout. Plus I got to illustrate the brutal assassination of a teddy bear, what more could you ask for.

Jay, your work is getting more clean and confident with nearly every panel.

Beautifully sharp line and shadows. Perfect style for Snarky, really enjoy this.

The art and story really have me, it's great to pop in once a week and see your fantastic work.

I really enjoyed the perspectives on the fight scene in week two, it felt really exciting.

Thanks Jeremy,

I'm feeling a lot better about the pages I'm creating, it's nice to see the confidence coming through on the pages.

Thanks Sherief,

Its great to hear that that sequence came out well. I had a lot of fun with that page.
