Girl Scouts Comic

I did some coloring work for Christine Norrie last spring which is finally available!  Christine is a fantastic artist with great inking skills, and so when she asked me to help out coloring an 18 page comic for the Girl Scouts, I was happy to get involved.
The comic was for the Agent of Change Handbook and was about a group of girls that found a box of abandoned puppies and chose to "do the right thing." Christine wanted to color the comic in gray tones with dots reminiscent of the old comics using Zip-A-Tone.  We settled on four shades of gray and the best combination of dot sizes.  I colored in flat grays and then converted the layers to dots.  Here are a couple of the pages as they looked before the dialogue balloons were added.  Click to enlarge them to see the dots in full effect.
