I’m really pouring a lot of effort into making “Off the Deep End” work as a comic. And I figure if it’s going to be a comic, it should have a cover. (Probably should have thought of this before I started posting the story itself, but eh.)
Of course, covers are hard work. I wanted to show the contrasting personalities of Jamie and Spencer. I wanted to work in elements of the story (namely, Jamie’s birthday). And I wanted the art itself to look its best, so I poured on lots of meticulous shading and lighting effects. All told, I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. So, if you saw it on the rack at your favorite comic shop, would you pick it up?
