Year of the Wet Hare: free comic

Readers of the official A Tiger’s Tale newsletter Tiger Talk received this special comic as a lunar new year gift. While it was more a meditation and celebration of the year previous. The year of the wet hare does feature a new Dragon.

It was inspired by a handful of conversations around the January’s new year. I kept noticing similar themes about the year’s initial start, intensity and imminent resolution. This brought to mind a classic tale about the Chinese Lunar zodiac – I wrote a version of it for readers at this time last year. The story itself was fairly straight forward, but as I worked on the tiniest of thumbnails (smaller even than my own thumb nail) I discovered that adding or subtracting panels was very easy in the 1:1 aspect ratio. From there, I realized I could create impact by doubling that ratio vertically or horizontally. This provided an interesting framework for using the multiple square panels and a few impact panels (that have a 1:2 or 2:1 ratio) to make up the comic.
