Cool PJ.
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

On day 6, there’s plenty of quality on show here, sir. I must say I’m really enjoying your looser inking style and even the lettering. The scripts are great. But, er, do take some downtime, yeah?

DOWNTIME??? THIS IS DOWNTIME! (joking aside, this IS me relaxing- I've really enjoyed doing these, even as it's taken a week of them for me to find my voice and figure out what tools give the best results, next time I bring a ruler with me though... drawing straight edges with an ipad Pro 12.9" as a ruler is no fun... in fact, I'm gonna miss it when I'm not doing these any more...)

Anyway the final hurrah! A 2 pager that, if there was any justice, would see me win either an eisner or an eagle award (or both) but equally could see me drummed out of all comic book circles for life!




As ever, there's an accompanying blog post: https://www.pauljholden.com/2022/07/15/holiday-comics-day-7/
