01-07-10: Overgrowth

And here we begin the story that was postponed a few weeks ago due to Quackers reaching it's 300th edition.
I had fun with this one. As it was such a short comic I was able to spend more time working on the backgrounds and overall appearance, something that I don't get the chance to do all too often. Part of the fun came from adding in all the little details in the last panel. I'm still surprised at how much of it is still visible after resizing the image for the website (always a good thing). Personally I think my favourite bit of the whole thing was spontaneously coming up with the parrot during the inking stage. While it won't become (yet another) pet of Jason and Tom, it may well pop up later in the year in a strip a little more piratey in nature...
