Hamletting: A 24-Hour Comic

Page Fourteen: 1:15pm-2:09pm

As of the last page, I had run out of "Lord of the Rings" CDs, so I switched over to listening to the original BBC Radio "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series, which would get me through the next three hours.

For some reason, as I started drawing the pocketwatch again, I initially thought to copy my first drawing from page seven. I relized shortly that that's one of those decisions that only makes sense when you're tired and, even then, not for very long. I got out my watch again and drew from life.

Shakespearian dialogue in panels two and six from Act 2, Scene 2.

Panel two is invented, but for panel six I needed reference for the famous Bowie grin (and didn't quite capture it):

You can see by the panel borders that then newer brush-pen I'd been using to draw them since the beginning was starting to run dry. I took to standing the pen upright between each use, with the point facing down so that the ink would gather at the tip.
