I originally drew this lioness for panels 5 and 6 on page 10 my 2010 comic Martian Debut. In 2011, I cut out the drawing and used white paint to attach it to another piece of paper and added a bit of detail in ink.

I showed and sold some of these collages at comic conventions and I kept getting asked the same question: Why is everything I make in black and white? My comics were made and printed in black and white to reduce production time and printing costs. But my collages? I could afford to add some color there.

So, in 2015, I spent about a week revisiting my finished collages, adding various amounts of color to a bunch of them. In these posts, when I’m able, I’m showing the original collage and the colored update.
