Jaguar, page twentythree

New page.

I've been trying to get a looser style going with these, but I think I've gone too far in the loose direction. Time to bring it back.

Jaguar, page twentytwo

New page!

I seem to be constantly trying to show conversations. I want to show how, in a real conversation, people talk over and behind others, and interrupt, and pause, and jump in.

What I also seem to be constantly doing is failing to get that feel right graphically. New Wave cinema did it by chop editing the conversation, and altering the backgrounds but not the narrative, and I'm just not getting how I can do that in comic form. Yet.

Jaguar, page twentyone

Another new page, with some slightly experimental layout stuff, and more excitingly, the smallest amount of colour ever used on a page!

Jaguar, page twenty

Here's page twenty of Jaguar, in which a journey ends, a meeting is missed and a hunter is sent.

Aside from just trying this story out, there are several things I'm trying, and my main goal from these past few pages is to see if this style (and my drawing) can handle different settings. We started in London, travelled to Cornwall and are now in the wilds of Bodmin moor, and I've tried to show urban exteriors and interiors, trains, travelling and now landscapes. Some of it I think has worked, some has been less successful.

Still, it's continued to be an interesting experiment on my part, and I hope that at least some people are enjoying it!

Jaguar, page nineteen

After a little break, I'm picking this up again.

I think there's still plenty for me to learn about storytelling from doing this, so on we go!
