Okay, so this seriously isn’t supposed to be a back patting exercise but I forgot how chuffed I am with the opening page!

My idea was that the sound effect would make you think it came from the ship but was actually Lloyd. And hey, this got me shaping rounding out ADDING to Lloyd’s character that he liked to eat (and hey, I get that!) and it became a continuing theme throughout the book.

So yeah, I’m very happy with the gag but more so that it got me fleshing out the character. And hey, Bear is grumpy! #standard

Sorry, I’m very, very, VERY happy with this page!

Okay, enough back patting! More soon! Bear hugs!

PS. Feels so super weird seeing these two flying a ship other than their own one. Super, super weird.
