Molly Blue pencil 31

This picture is an assembly of two pencil drawings. I drew page 31 pencils as rows of panels the way I mostly had been doing since page 8, but the upper panels are sort of composites, since I traced Willy's electric volkswagen from other drawings behind the figures, then drew a landscape around that. The first panel was the first appearance of Molly's "distressed face," an expression not used very often, but it does reappear a few times.

The lower panel was one drawing. The volcanoes in the background are essentially the view of Haleakala from Seven Pools Campground, in Haleakala National Park. There's a sketch of this in my Hawaiian Journal (look here and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page!…) It's my own website. It won't bite. The low cliffs in the foreground belong only to Molly's world. The number of cows in the scene increased from 4 to 12 by the time I inked and colored it. I also added three trees.
