My style hasn’t changed fundamentally but the execution is deffo way better. The hand-lettering helps with the cohesion too.

It’s fun getting back into drawing sharper, stylised shapes. Stuff like Alexander Comic leans closer towards realism so I can’t bend and kink silhouettes as much RIP

Not much tweaking with this layout – the original’s composition is pretty decent. I swapped out the panel of “Grimsley putting away the teapot” for “Grimsley about to take a sip” so that the visual transition is clearer and makes more logical sense. Toned down the red in the palette. Redesigned the tea set to be more specific to the era, with a hint of Chinoiserie as a sneaky nod to TCM’s ‘Orientalism is a pervasive Western lens in every part of an English setting’ theme.
