Molly Blue pencil 31

By cloudmonet

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! www.carlmillerpoems.com/hawaii…) 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.
