I thought perhaps there might be at least one of my ten lovely readers who would be interested in this 2 1/2 minute, slightly mesmerizing time lapse video of me coloring a Rabbits strip. The strip is set to run next month so if you can read it it's also a sneak preview of sorts. I did it in Photoshop and if you're the sort of techie person who likes full disclosure, the video starts with me having already scanned the strip at 600 DPI, adjusted the threshold to 140 and duplicated the layers so I have one for coloring and one on top of it that has just the black with the rest transparent. There's more on my process here and here. The music was just something that I had handy and used without permission! It's by the very wonderful People Like Us and Ergo Phizmiz. The strip took about 40 minutes to color in real time.
