preliminary drawing

Seth gave this preliminary pencil drawing for Big in Japan to Julien Schantz.

From it you can see a little about Seth's working methods. The page is ruled into squares, and I assume that it is from those that he established his perspective lines. In this image, the place is more important than any of the individual people, so that was drawn first. Then the people (and other creatures), inside and outside, could be added without losing the structure of the image.

This prelim turned into a panel on issue 1, page 19, that takes up the top third of the page.

In the actual comic book page (though not in this drawing) the sushi bar is called Sushi セス(Sushi Seth).
