I decided to shoot some of Tropico’s promo with a disposable camera. I find that looking at disposable photographs provides for a kind of assumed intimacy between subject and viewer; wanted the grainy neighborhood photographs to feel oddly nostalgic and relatable.
I already plugged this over at my art tumblr, but seriously, if you haven’t read this, it’s amazing. It’s like 28 pages and manages more characterization and subtext and implied backstory than I can imagine cramming into a comic twice this length.
I read “Boys’ Night” about a month ago and still can’t stop thinking about it, especially the last 6 or so pages.
This is a really good read, it’s more than just a “cartoon characters swear and drink and do adult things” comic. It’s interesting seeing cartoon characters you grew up discuss a lot of problems and personal fears adults have, and it ends on a great note.
