On the use of text-balloons

I’ve changed the appearance of the text-balloons a bit when I started the next installment of this comic. There is a dropshadow on the balloons to separate them a bit more from the background and I also use a smaller pixel-size so I have a bit more freedom with the amount of text. Besides that my other ‘rules of thumb’ have remained the same like no part of the text-balloon can touch or obscure the characters.
Once in a while I’ll try new things. I’m experimenting a bit with bold words. I saw this in the phenomenal graphic novel “Bone”, and I thought I’d give it a try. It does seem to liven up the language, but I still have to get a feel for how to use bold words in this.

In other news, I’ve been down with the flu the last couple of days, not the way I imagined 2017 would start 🙁 . On the other hand I did find time to make a couple of photo’s more than expected, so that’s good 🙂 . How has your year been this first week of the year?
