You get the page set up just so - and it practically sings to your eyeballs when it's right.
Some of the pages, it's like pulling teeth from a wild animal very attached to their teeth to get there... the pictures want to compete instead of compliment, there's too much text. There's too little text. The words are the wrong length, so the paragraph looks jumpy. Then, some pages go together like inspiration, drag in three pictures, resize them each once, copy in the text and everything's already there, exactly where they should be... it's funny, it's punchy, it's easy to follow through the page, and all the art is playing nicely together.
The last page went together in the former manner, and that's a nice feeling. I'm through Weird Fruit, Gearworld, Pink Lizards, My Little Things (though I'm leaning on Ursula for another one, because the page doesn't really sing yet), Ads, Squash Kachina, and the bio, and now I'm poking at Donkeys and wondering how to open into the big-nosed guys.
A few stylistic questions for you in artbook preferences:
What single piece must not, under any circumstances, ever, be ommitted from Ursula's book?
