I had an idea to have the ‘lines’ in the border panel rather than in the panel. I tried several variations and interestingly they didn’t work except this one. Like you say I think it is because of the uncontrolled application of the ink.
I agree with Ed – there is something really cool happening in this one, and it does have something to do with the unrestrained quality of the lines and the restricted sense of framing. These comics make me think of frames in new ways as you are not ‘framing’ anything, in a sense. Are they even frames anymore? What is a frame? Has the white page become the frame?
