Elan on CH's piano

I know it is a bit unusual for webcomics, but one of my favorites activities for Elan Meets Rafa is finding music for the soundtrack. Since I especially love covers, I’m excited to have found Postmodern Jukebox — a revolving band that pulls today’s pop songs back in time to the styles of jazz, ragtime, and swing!

Update and take a listen!

How the art has changed over the last two years
AKA how doing webcomics makes you a better artist by force
rafa-evolutionWithout a doubt I think I’ve improved most upon Rafa. His LOOKS (not personality) modeled after a blonde Ecuadoran man I met briefly.
It took me years to get him almost to that man. Many more years to come?
Next…Elan! woo boy.
Don’t forget there are sketches (maybe spoilerish but out of context, I’m careful) and previews at the TUMBLR page!
