DETECTIVE BOOGALOO: HIP-HOP COP DAILY | WHAT'S THE HAPS?


One thing that changed from the original strip to the new dailies was Boogaloo's 'voice' which originally was a font made out of my handwriting, became my handwriting--freehanded right on the digital strip.

Boogaloo is the only character in this universe with a different font for their dialogue--a small visual cue that he is different, so don't compare him to another.

Cuz' they can't hang! Word to the mother.

DETECTIVE BOOGALOO: HIP-HOP COP DAILY | LET IT YO LET IT YO LET IT YO


One of my favorite sequences, where we get to play with some mood and play in the snow. E did a great job setting the tone in this arc of strips.

DETECTIVE BOOGALOO: HIP-HOP COP DAILY | SHE WATCHES CHANNEL ZERO


One of my favorite strips - I really wanted to take a peek into BLING CITY from the perspective of a Man on the Street--What does a citizen of BLING CITY think about Ice Tre', or better yet, have you noticed how quickly some people want to jump in front of a camera? Fame comes any way you can get it sometimes.

Also, peep my man BRENT BROCKENSMITH, my favorite newsanchor, rocking the BLING CITY GLACIERS jersey. Ice Tre's reach is far-reaching.


COLOR NOTES FROM E:

I always got excited whenever there was snow in a strip because figuring out how to layer it was a really fun process. And this strip had so many textures in it! The camo jacket, the emergency lights in the background, the snow – it was really busy color-wise, which is the sort of challenge I really like dealing with. Especially the camo – I freehanded that pattern off a couple of different references and ended up kind of winging it. It’s also the only color in that panel that isn’t a variation of blue or red (or purple) – besides the gold ice cube tray on his hat, of course, which really helped center him as a focal point despite the chaos around him. I ended up doing a lot of red/blue color schemes throughout the strip.
