    Extra efforts were made to synch Sunday and the dailies reasonably well. Not perfect, but I think various types of readers were thoughtfully accommodated.

    I agree – if the black and white art had a gray tone for that character, she would have been Delta-ized.

    heh-heh-heh — the great mystery remains, MikeyJ.

    what I meant to say was that there have been some Christmastime flashbacks, but beyond that I’d need a memory jolt.

    did I hit the max word limit?

    You are correct, I used a gentle gradient from light blue to an even lighter blue. CMYK print specs for those who know or care: (cyan-magenta-yellow-black) from 13-0-5-0 to 29-6-15-0. ..Time permitting, I try to add muted gradients to Greg’s background fills to contrast with the generally flat and more intense color fills of the foreground characters and objects. I color ten different strips per week and he’s the only one I regularly give the “extra treatment” to for a few reasons...First, he puts a LOT into his work and contrary to some poorly conceived opinions here and at ArcaSmax, he’s not one for lazy shortcuts. If there’s any laziness, it’s comments such as that – which are thrown into the fray without knowing the demands of the business...Secondly, Greg is remarkably consistent in his line rendering. I know in advance were he will leave gaps in shapes to be filled and that’s a big time saver production-wise...Third, he appreciates the extra touches and lets me know. He also gives me long advance information on new characters and color preferences, this wedding being the latest instance. There were a lot of challenges in trying to coordinate his Sunday coloring with the dailies. I’m sure the Kolor Kops (as someone other than me puts it) will be out looking for errors :-)

    Even though I technically work for Universal when coloring, I consider Greg my client and treat him accordingly. If I was a younger man I’d be lobbying to be his successor, but alas, I am grayer than he is! Not older, just grayer.

    In an age where cartoonists have sabbaticals and time off written into their contracts, Greg is pretty much at the [digital] board all year round. I have to think really hard to recall if he’s fallen back on reruns. It would take me too log to go through the archives – maybe one of our more astute historians can chime in. We’ve done some Christmastime flash

    I think it’s time we gave Greg and Karen a hand for showing us how good a professional team they actually are as opposed to the naysayers of long ago (don’t miss ‘em a bit) who questioned her real additive value to the strip. It’s clearly on display here.

    Glad you enjoy the pain!

    Ha! Doesn’t mean guys won’t stop wearing them, especially the dudes with little hair on top, but still have peripheral growth. Like David Crosby (although his is almost a skullet), however he gets a pass on his long established brand and talent.
