"NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL? There’s a shining blue THING embedded into your hand that’s leaking some black gunk UNDER YOUR SKIN and its not a big deal?”
“Well, if you wanna see a BIGGER deal i can undo my pan-”
Mehh I was just thinking about the sword having some effect on Tucker like it left a shard in his skin that bled a bit of dark ooze into Tucker’s palm when he had been using the sword for a while, but Tucker hides it because he wants to use the thing he’s best at no matter the consequences, but then he notices that the ooze is going further and further up his arm and he starts getting worried and decides to go to the person he currently trusts with his life: Washington.
Tucker tries to play it off with jokes, but he’s actually really terrified because he doesn’t know what’s gonna happen to him or anything and Washington goes into “Overprotective Mama” mode and tries to find out anyway he can how to help Tucker.
Eventually they figure out that it only grows when Tucker uses the sword and Wash forbids him from using it (going so far as to get Donut to chuck the sword as faaaaaar as he could throw it) and then Tucker is like “Well, What the fuck do I do now? The sword was my WHOLE THING. I’m just like useless trash now” And Wash comforts him or something like “Nah babe you is so IMPORT” and then kissing and Wash helps Tucker forge another sword from broken gun pieces or something. and its the shit. The End.
how did you write the script for yellowcake? your vague style really makes the illustrations explain the story and it really inspires me
Hi! Thank you for the ask!
Before I started illustrating —> yellowcake <— I tried to have each part semi figured out in scripts/thumbnails. I knew exactly what I wanted to say before I decided on an image/idea/scene to present it.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom was clearly written for beginning readers. It focuses on teaching young children their ABC’s in a cute and fun way. The text rhymes throughout the story making the book sound like a song when read out loud. This will help children’s memory skills as they try to memorize their ABC’s. Furthermore, the book is repetitive. Readers are introduced to all of the letters of the alphabet as they climb up the coconut tree. However, once all of the letters have been introduced this way, the author chose to have the letters fall down the tree so he could introduce them all again in order to make them more memorable for children.
Rather than focusing on having detailed or elaborate photographs, the illustrator chose to focus primarily on color. The pictures are very bright and colorful which helps to build on the fun atmosphere created in this story. The letters are very clear and recognizable. The photographs look rather repetitive as they all feature the letters and coconut tree. The illustrator did a good job of matching the pictures with the text. However, it is clear that in this book the main focus is on the text, not the illustrations, despite the young audience.
