Comic challenge for last week: draw a comic that, like music, starts softer and builds to a dramatic climax, then goes quiet again. I’ve wanted to do this Girl Efficiency strip since week 1, and it’s taken me this long to find a prompt that seemed to fit what I wanted to do.

I used a few different techniques to “turn up the volume” panel to panel. Not all of them were as effective, but I think it worked for the 2 page story I wanted to tell.

Girl Efficiency and the Stalled Subway


I could have waited until Monday to post this, but nobody’s submitted for this prompt yet, and it looked so lonely.
