Iron Lung Kitty is back and without the comic sans. The next page is being pencilled and should be up next week.

I miss the cat with a medical marijuana card

It's a medical catnip card.

Oh ya Catnip

Interesting composition. With a split computer screen I placed ILK page 20 next to Iron Lung Kitty #2, which really stands out because of its traditional execution and color clarity.

removal of the comic sans feels like a boot lifted from the neck of this strip.   Chris 7.1 is a champion!

I'm all for compositional experimentation in order to develop a signature style, but this stylistic direction is heading towards questionable commercial success. I like the panel outlines and their quirky placements---the overall line work on ILK is always excellent---but again, the fundamental design choices involve deleting any unnecessary elements. Fans are always looking for consistent design cues.

It's funny you should mention #2, Mofo, because I always go back to that page because of it's vibrancy. I want the series to go back to that brightness whenever possible.
Also, comic sans sucks kitty litter.

Mofo, alot of this is experemental. The nature of the storyline allows for jumping from style to style when it's needed. For the most part, I like the look of the pages from 1 to 19 and will continue when the story calls for it.

Foundry type or making a custom font will need to include two line weights for conveying emphasis, and it's okay, maybe preferable, if it resembles the visual grammar--- i.e. Comic Sans, all caps---of what multi-generational viewers are accustomed to reading in comics. If the letterforms are consistent across the panel(s) then the words can fade into a secondary position in the visual scheme.

Chris 7.2: No doubt, the progression of ILK shows the range of possibilities for the franchise.

ILK t-shirt!   ILK toys!  ILK joint Lego series!  ILK adult swim animated cartoon series!   ILK lunch box!  ILK graphic novels  ILK 'duster' spin off series!

ILK Kitty Litter! As for duster, he will be featured more. Once I wrap up the ILK story line, I will be faced with what to do with Duster because ILK and CC's fate has already been decided.
