This is a good example of one of my favorite parts of doing this project. Taking something that I was never happy with both conceptually and artistically and having the time and experience to clarify the thought. I wrote OINK when I was very young, I hadn't really experienced very much and so I knew very little about loss and grief. Conceptually the idea of this sequence was OINK standing before god and being judged. I think I really hadn't given God much thought at the time at 22 to really see him the way I wanted OINK to see him. I love the way the final sequence came out, and it's one of my favorite moments in the new book.
The difference between these panels pretty much sums up the overall changes with the new edition. I feel with the new book I pulled it all together into a seamless experience for a reader of words and pictures...I hope you will agree.
