Here's page 2 of Hogtown Spirits #1: Wyatt Blake. Once again Barb's artwork is too good. Love the shading on the crowd in the club, kinda want to listen in on whatever conversation those guys are having. And our bartender, Dash Hamilton, chipping away at the ice block is just perfect. The jazz club in Hogtown is called the Night Howl. Like many things in Hogtown it was inspired by something in the real city of Toronto, in this case, a mix of The Rex hotel and jazz bar and the historical Colonial Tavern. The chipping away at the spherical ice block was inspired by the incredible bartenders at BarChef on Queen St. W.. Grab a drink there and sit at the bar to watch them work, it's fantastic.
For those interested in the writing side of comics below is the script for this page of the book. The comic is out digitally this Wednesday through Comixology and Gumroad. Check back here for links to get it!
