Fernbank Science Center
This is a longer piece I did for the Decatur Patch that I posted this week. I'd like to do more with this-- there feels like there's more of a story here -- but I'm not sure where I'd take it.
In the middle of writing this, I was teaching Chris Ware's Building Stories, and I'm afraid it really shows in the "walk around the center" page. I thought it was great at the time, but after letting it sit awhile and then inking it, I'm not so sure.
I used the gray tones in the hopes of creating a shorthand or shortcut to meet daily deadlines and give it some heft. This has left me feeling like it was a big mistake. No matter how many times I stray into tones/color, I keep forgetting that those are about shape and form, a completely different thing from linework.
