LOST AT SEA COLOR SPECIAL (Summer 2002)

Lost at Sea is a story about two streams of information: the inside of your head, and what’s going on in the world around you. This early 2-page strip (done a few months before commencing work on the graphic novel) jumbles all that information into one page. But I also split it here into two separate strips in order to make it more readable on tumblr or on mobile devices.

The background light streaky photos were taken by me out the window of a car on my own sad-ass road trip (from Toronto to Montreal) a few months earlier, after my own sad-ass breakup.

I tweaked the original 2002 colors, adding more pinks and more saturated blues, and I think it looks really nice :I

As I’ve mentioned before, I am trying to put together a 10-year anniversary edition of my first book, Lost at Sea (which came out in December 2003, so you do the math!)

I was thinking it would be cute to have some reader testimonials on the back or inside the book, so if you really connected with Lost at Sea, please send me a tumblr note, or email me (bryan@radiomaru.com) with a brief paragraph, preferably 100 words or less, plus a first name and last initial (ie “Bryan O.”) and I’ll try to select a few for the book!

squeebles-4-lyfe asked:

So with the ten year anniversary of Lost at Sea coming up, I was curious, have you ever thought of turning it into a movie? Or ever been approached by someone wanting to turn it into a movie?

Fans ask me this all the time!

Having one movie adaptation made is by no means a guarantee that I’ll ever have another. Getting movies made is a strange and mysterious process. The fact that SPVTW exists and is pretty good (and pretty faithful to the books) is kind of a miracle.

Anyway, Lost At Sea… we were approached at one point by a young director who I really respect, but they had a pretty different take on it. Mainly: they wanted it to take place during the final weeks of high school, instead of after. Like a strange high school comedy with magical elements. I felt weird about changing some fundamental aspects of the story and eventually passed on the whole thing.

I don’t necessarily think Lost at Sea would make a good movie at all. I think it’s pretty suited to the medium of comics, since it kinda reads like a diary with pictures. I think a lot of that text would feel “wrong” if translated to voiceover narration.

the lost page of Lost At Sea

my cat spilled ink on it.

At this point in the book, i was working nonstop, sleeping for 3-4 hours, working nonstop again, trying to get everything finished on time. I was pretty much delirious. I think this page would have been a little better than the one that ended up in the book since i had to redraw it double speed, but oh well.
