Our White Rabbit is albino but it was harder to portray pink eyes in grayscale than I thought. White Rabbit looks a little blind in the fifth panel… Hm. And if you’re a little confused about the last tri-panel, it is a flash of reality where Joe Blow Screenwriter’s mirror is falling. I liked the kinda misty/mirror-mirror-ness of how it turned out.
With a sick baby and packing to move and a new job and such, I barely got this one out on time. I do have a cushion of strips, mind you, but most of them are of later story parts as I decided last minute how to start the webcomic for you all. Never fear:) I am quite reliable and vow not to let you down until the 100th strip! :) Yes, that was a joke. About letting you down… Yeah. It’s late.
I instantly fell in love with the way the white rabbit talks!! looking forward to more. this story is getting really good.
The white Rabbit is Chinese? Awesome.
The Chinese accent was my idea:) I hadn’t seen anyone do a white rabbit with pink eyes but it still wasn’t quite unique enough. The book describes him wearing a waistcoat but nothing further so I made it one of those Chinese jackets and the accent came from there. He’s gotta be one of the most re-envisioned of the fairytale characters so far, except of course the whole conglomerate thing with Dorothy:)
Hey, if you guys can convince a friend or two each to check out Shards, I’ll post a color pin-up of the White Rabbit at 3,500 visits. We’re at 3,220 right now.
Everyone, give Jade some well wishes. She and her daughter were very sick with the stomach flu over the weekend, she could use some happy thoughts.
