If you don’t know, here’s the story of how “Something Big” came about:
Mid Season 5 we tried to make a 45 minute Adventure Time TV movie. We almost did it, but the thing was a mess and needed so much work to get in shape. All the individual parts were really cool, but they weren’t hanging together right, and the end seemed impossible to figure out. I’d boarded the first 10 minutes of it (Steve Wolfhard helped me clean up my drawings. Actually Steve cleaned up all of my drawings.)
So the thing sat there for months. I was really psyched on my section and started to feel certain this movie was never gonna see the light of day. So we started pushing that we should cannibalize the parts and make them into episodes. That’s basically what happened. I got my opening section and used about half of it of it to make this episode a standalone story.
It’s the first episode I boarded by myself, which was a cool experience after several years of collaborating with partners. Collaborating is something a lot of indie comic artists aren’t used to doing. It creates this exciting/frightening sense of risk and surprise. Most of the time it’s humbling because your partner will come up with story solutions and visual set pieces you’d never think of. BUT it’s also awesome to have complete control over the pacing and layout of a story. You get the freedom to reach unhindered into your vision of the episode architecture.
It’s not something I’d want to do every time, but it was a nice change of pace.
I don’t know why I put a gradient on this drawing. I was just messing around I guess.
So Thursday night’s plan is watching the new Fionna & Cake episode at 7:00 p.m. (the VCR’s broken) then heading over to The Secret Headquarters to get signed the new books from Seo, Jillian, and Jesse.
Yup! Pretty neat to be doing a signing with two of my favourite artists.
Now that’s what I call a triple threat
