In the context of what was written at toontalk I wouldn't want a third party coloring my work. As far as what I prefer, I think I like the black and white better but again I'm not sure why.<P>With Loose Parts I'm not surprised the panel looks better seeing as he draws the panel then converts it to a strip. If I drew mine that way I'd have the same problem. I go through my work and look at which gags visually I think will work better in strip shape or panel shape and draw them specifically to that shape. But I admire Dave's work ethic to do both.<P>BTW, I drew a couple panels with the human Eric for The New Breed but he doesn't have the same impact. I'll have to keep experimenting but I think as Elephant Tales will only stay on the web I don't see the need in changing him from an Elephant now. If I have any success with the new breed any relevant gags that once used Eric will be replaced by whatever I happen to draw in his place (a change of face and name).<P>Oh, and it was interesting to hear that Saturdays was the low day. In Australia (well at least my state) Saturday is by far the biggest circulation - I know coz I toured the paper during a course I was doing. I think the same applies all over Australia. It was just interesting to find out.
