Excellent work as always, Matt. Love the big, floppy knuckle-dragger arms contrasting the dainty little legs.

But why only one cry for "HELP?" The caption speaking in plural, would it better suggest his frustration with a bunch of balloons?

Just a thought. Excellent work.

Coloring in Illustrator...madman.

ya know i originally had about a dozen helps in different fonts and sizes.. when i pulled back tho it made it cluttered and took away from the simplicity of the piece.... so i went with one word balloon with different lines going to it like alot of people were yelling help at the same time... that didn't work to well either. so i pulled back to one decent sized help.

i agree tho if i could have had it effectively work i would have done it...

You're right. Now that I've had a second look at it, it's much stronger without the added balloons.

There's something to be said for clean, clear, concise storytelling.
