  • One of many (possibly unnecessary) things that I have started to think about are the actual functional/physical/financial mechanics behinds running a varsity loggersports team. Where do you source the wood? The metal frames? How is everything stored? Where do all the chopped wood bits go after practice? How do in-debt students afford the gear? Where do they sharpen the tools? Environmental sustainability? Etc. My stories are really rooted in practicality, haha.

  • I struggled a lot with axe poses; I watched many videos online; specifically thanks to Mike Singerland and Matt Bush for their step-by-step voice-over video, which was immensely helpful, though I didn't follow everything because of composition reasons.

  • Drawing Jake with glasses makes me a lot happier than drawing him without.

  • I still have a great dislike for toning. At first I toned everything to be NIGHT TIME and it was really dark, then it dawned on me that it's still pretty bright out at 6:45pm in the spring/summer.

  • Austin's axe is roughly based off of a Tuatahi training axe; I ended up looking up inseam pant length of a 6' tall person to attempt (!) to get the relative axe handle length more correct, but who knows.

  • I was 50% going to leave the top-most underhand chop panel on page 3 as just a black bg with only sound effects overlaid on top. Then I thought "maybe I should challenge myself to draw actual chopping" and immediately regretted that decision, but the progressively chopped diagonal log motif in the background (which I think is interesting) would not exist without the decision...so maybe the effort was worth it?

  • I haven't drawn one of those iconic DBZ vein-pops in a while!

  • In the spirit of FujoSports, I had to include some double entendre dialogue
