I’m coloring the story’s images out of sequence. You would think that it would be a good idea to start with picture #1 and then go to 2, 3, 4, etc. I agree. That is a good idea, but I’m doing them in the order that feels right when I sit down to paint. When I’m a little tired and impatient, my plans for systematic creation simply fly out the window and I’m left to my raw instincts.
In this image Momma Jay sees Jimmy on the roof. He’s looking down the chimney. Naturally, she’s terrified that he’s going to be swallowed just like her long lost brother. I don’t blame her for being scared.
