This page underwent a bunch of revisions. It was important I got the mood of the scene right as it has some significance within the larger story. Originally there were more panels, but I moved those to the next page to really take the time and linger on this moment between Alex and this mystery lady.

The musical swirls were a very late addition; I played with the idea of some sort of physical manifestation of her music early on but and eventually scrapped it because it didn’t look right. However the page felt empty without some sort of musical indication, so I tried a technique my art teacher once taught me, which is to put on a song and just let the music guide the pen. I think it captured the delicate and graceful nature of the music pretty well.
