Things are moving slowly this week RE: Troop 142, so I don’t think I’m going to be able to get any new pages posted. Instead, I’ve decided to post a sequence that isn’t going to make it into the final book, where the Troop wakes up early to participate in a Polar Bear Swim.
I probably drew these pages over two years ago, and even though I think this scene is funny, I’m not sure that there’s a place for it to fit into the story anymore. And, aside from that, my drawing style has changed enough since then that I think it would be pretty noticeable if I just dropped it all in somewhere. I’m pretty proud of some of the pictures of the kids swimming in the water, though, so I’m glad to be able to show this stuff off, even if only as a “discarded scene”.
