APL PRESENTS SUPER SPECIAL #1
PHOTO GALLERY

   
 

     Here are the photos taken by Shawn Levesque at the workshop that produced Super Special #1, which, because of technological constraints, were not included in the printed issue.  Although the book was strictly in black and white, they are presented here in color.

 
 

 

     Here they are, the staff of APL Presents Super Special #1!!!  Back row (l):  Amani T., Jagger T., Graesyn W., Brock N., Jeremy C., Seth K., Logan M. with Mr. J. in the front kneeling (it never gets old) and that's our newly created villain, Carl the Conqueror, on the board.

 

 

     This is Jeremy and Brock already inking their pages.  It never ceases to amaze the intensity that occurs when the students are delineating their pencil work.  Jeremy had been worried about slapping ink to his art, but he handled it like a trooper.

 

 

     This is Graesyn transferring his rough layout over to the final paper (taking two pages down to one big one, and the team effort of Jagger and Amani.  After coming up with their story, Jagger penciled their combined pages and Amani inked them.

 

 

     Master Jen assists Seth and Logan in their page layouts.  The transfer from small paper to large was pretty straight forward for Logan, but Seth's pages ended up being presented sideways in the final book.

 

 

     Graesyn continues to steam away, battling the ticking clock to finish his page.

 

 

     Jagger and Amani racing as well, dreading the cruel whip of Mr. J.  Okay, these last two were almost exactly the same as above, but there aren't exactly a lot of car chases or fight scenes while drawing out an art page.

 

 

     Mr. J shows Logan how to do his lettering while Jeremy and Brock get busy with their ink work, choosing just the right pen for the job.

 

 

     A long shot of the same scene, including the remnants of the pizza feast we all had for lunch.

 

 

Seth and Logan completely unaware of the camera.

 

 

     Now, the camera hounds are on pins and needles waiting for Mr. J to get back with the reduced copies of their pages.

 

 

     One last snack before we finish!!!  Jeremy and Brock slide in under the deadline and wait for their pages to come back for the final book.  If I had a dollar for every package of Smarties consumed....

 

 

     Last minute advice to finish up his pages, Graesyn consults Master Jen.

 

 

     Jagger finishes the last frame of their shared pages just under the deadline wire.  There had been some debate with his partner in crime, Amani, how the last frame was going to read.

 

 

     Okay, this one needs a bit of explanation.  While giving out the prizes, one of the toothpicks used for glue to cut and paste the book together was found and jokingly offered as a prize if Mr. J could sign it.  We got a picture of the toothpick--but none of the other great prizes.

 

 

     As a final offering, here is the two panel that photog Shawn Levesque created during the course of the workshop.
