My friend Emmi recently commissioned me to do a drawing of her dog, Maple. I had been wanting to try playing with comic book ┬ápanels – using different shapes and sizes – and Maple was the perfect subject matter for the style. For several weeks Emmi sent me pictures of Maple sleeping on everything, generally in contorted positions, and never with much concern for what she was squishing or pushing out of the way. I thought it would be fun to emphasize this personality trait by pushing and pulling the different panels – letting her body distort the shape all together, or just letting a leg or a tail hang out.

I’ll definitely be trying more panels in the future – they were a lot of fun to play with. Would love to try a short comic too…that might be the next hurdle.

    I love the serialized version of this. I think its a great way to get the full personality of something like a pet in.
