Errand of Mercy: The Potato Comic

Last week I finished that potato comic I was working on for the Massachusetts Historical Society! The official title is Errand of Mercy: The Irish Potato Blight and the Good Ship Jamestown, but you know, that's kind of a mouthful. In all its glory:


I started to fully tone it, but they were coming out pretty clunky, so I decided to keep it at inks. It kind of looks like a coloring book, haha; I may keep practicing tones on it. Anyways, teaching a comics workshop at MHS next week. They're always fun, and the kids are always way more productive and confident than the cartoonists teaching it: Ten pages a day, straight-ahead scripting? I cannot do this.
