(Jon sez:)

Your Writer: Jon Kilgannon The expression that Caprice is wearing is called guileless. The expression I'm wearing right now is called sneezing a lot. Off to bed.
(Mark sez:)

Your Artist: Mark Sachs Addendum: The color page is up now. If for some reason you still want to see the rough page, I've uploaded it here.

What you see above is the rough pencils version of a MoS page. Every Wednesday and Sunday (sadly, usually rather late on Wednesdays and Sundays) I finish a rough, scan it at 300 DPI, add the appropriate dialogue to it in Photoshop, and send it off in more or less this format to Jon who makes sure I haven't done something careless like imply a torrid love affair between Chaucer and Greta or misspell the word "absquatulation." Then I ink the page, apply CG effects and colors in Photoshop, and upload that sucker. Total time elapsed from start to finish: a mere 700 hours. I'll replace this with the final colored version of the page tomorrow night, but hey, consider this a brief behind-the-scenes look at MoS.

(Note to self: cross "here's your behind-the-scenes look at MoS!" off list of acceptable excuses.)
