I chose to make this a double page spread in order to make the time appear longer, as your eye must traverse the length of two pages together rather than one at a time. Also the staccato panel design was intended to create a monotonous rhythm, visually reiterating Charlie’s state of mind, as he struggles to outline his new script.

I find Charlie’s eureka moment, followed by his enthusiastic typing and self-satisfied grin –just to reveal that his idea was to type the number 1 and a period — to be quite charming.

I’m pretty fond of this guy.
