Pansy Notter - Seeds
I deliver the scripts looking like you see above, laid out with the type already set and a rough version of the line work scribbled in. If it gets the thumbs up, I then go back and draw it larger and colour it. It's been an interesting discipline to write three-panel gag strips for the first time since Russ Carvell and I did Timeshack and the original UT strip 25 years ago (no, I don't think they are online anywhere. Yes I did just look). When they start appearing the Beano I hope you like my efforts.
