I grinned the whole time I drew this page. GROUP HUG.
More behind-the-scenes: this sequence was a nightmare, logistically. From when Diva enters Mr. Virgil’s office, I had to map out each character’s movements so that they would all intersect at appropriate times. (Thank heavens that I’d never drawn all of the left wall in Virgil’s office. That second door was invaluable!) There are still a few hiccups — for instance, Michelle would have to be seeing Diva’s parents from pretty far away at that angle in the first panel — but I’ve only had one “oh, booger” moment, and it’s the second-last-panel on this page. I wanted Michelle and Gabriel to be running past from their initial place behind the bush, but I realized way too late that I’d actually placed them on the other side of the scene, as if they’re running BEHIND Diva and her family. So, uh, just pretend they ninjaed around the other side? ^^; The next page will be consistent at least since I caught it early, haha.
Today’s incentive is a short sketch comic about Diva’s report card.
