Well this is a short one but it's getting late. I'm experimenting a bit more. I'm trying to make the childhood days more cartoonish and the older days slightly more 'serious', or at least have different looks. This time I combined hand-drawn drafts with a bit of direct inking with the calligraphy tool and playing with fills.
This starts a new episode, this is present day. I keep changing the face of Mr Mann so I tried to make it more obvious but... you tell me if I succeeded.
Note: the clever ones will notice that cats don't live 30 years. It should actually be the same cat so I have a problem here... maybe I should just make it 20 years later... or maybe I'll make it the son! or the grandson! We'll see.
Update: Changed font.
