Notes from the Manager
As I mentioned on Friday on Flicker / Facebook, I wanted to do a parody of a movie poster, and I settled on Memento. It features Jason and Devi, so it sort of ties in with #363–365, where those two saw Ghajini, a shamless (remake of a) rip-off of Memento — but mostly I just thought it'd make a fun image. I hadn't actually intended on doing it so quickly, but I was having too much fun to stop! You can see the original Memento poster over at IMP Awards.
This sort of lighting is a bit on the complicated/time-consuming side, so no, I don't think I'll be using it in the regular strip, but it does make sense (to me) to use them for special illustrations like this, including the eBook covers. After playing around with the techniques, I have updated the first/only HD edition eBook to a "Second Edition," dated Summer 2009. The updated cover is the main change to the book, but I fixed a few mistakes and may have tweaked a few tiny details in the art, as well.
