Geranium Lake Properties, “The Deadly Tendrils of Bairg Lungdo”

© lcmt 2015

I’m pretty sure this is another part of The Secret of Watchstone Rim.

Asemic comics are published here three times a week, on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Except for last Tuesday. I know I’ve been saying that a lot lately. My schedule at work has been changing every week. That’s only a minor disruption, but it does mean I have a little less time to sulk in my cave. Which is necessary for my creative process. So last Tuesday I caught up on my sulking.

This morning, I could have posted this:


But no, I had to fuss around with it some more. This afternoon, I could have posted this:


But no, I had to mess with the color a bit, until, after several hours (in which I also went to the drugstore, and talked to my sister on the phone for at least an hour) I finally arrived at the top image.

  1. Busy, busy, busy! Mostly I like the lettering, but the colour reduction was probably a good idea. I miss the red in the final version though: possibly feeling something more deadly about colours in the red/violet range? (How predictable!)

    • The lettering is what I call my natural asemic hand. When I sit down with a piece of paper and a felt pen, and start writing asemically, that’s the result. I had a tough time picking my final choice from the variations for this panel, so I thought, in this case, I would show everybody the alternatives. I almost picked the one with the red. But now, each time I look at them, I become more convinced that the one with the “green planet” (as my friend Lee called it) is the final draft.
