    did you add the colors? very cool :)

    did you choose the colors or was there some rationale somewhere on which should be used where?

    It seems like each was strategically chosen.

    At first I was just going to do spot color with that yellow shade, since the real Dorothy Parker's poetry always reminded me of the color yellow.
     
    But then I thought to myself...What The Hey!

    I'm a big fan of 'what the hey!' :)

    I like it, those spot colors actually set the mood for me all the way through, very creative approach.

    You're too kind.
     
    I'll answer my PM's and then turn in. Tomorrow is Tuesday at the comic book store and I have to clear the way for Wednesday.
     
    G'night, Tony.

    Whats the term for this kind of coloring?  Darwyn Cooke uses similar style in his Parker (No relation to Dorothy) books. 
    I agree with Tonis that the colors were a nice touch

    I am afraid I never read ant of Dorthy Parker's poems always wanted to.  This certain "Song" strikes me heart strings since both Alan Moore and Prince have written a song about her and she has always been a creator I wanted to read, never got around to it.  This also likely the first thing I have ever seen you letter since this was the first of the songs I've read in comic format.   So it seems you and I were friends before I met you, since you touched a comic that is influential to me.
     
    I personally love Prince Ballad of Dorthy Parker more, but don't tell Alan that.

    You need to read Dorothy Parker's poems, Silk!  She was a true American original. 
     
    And I haven't spoken to Alan in ages. Frankly, I'm afraid to call him. 
     
    You have to understand that when a comic book writer and a comic book letterer have a long-overdue conversation, one thing always comes up. The comic book writer always has some artist friend who is looking for a letterer. And honey, if Alan asks you for a favor you DON'T turn him down!  :D 
     
    It's not as though I flat-out hate to letter, it's just that at this point in my life I've set my sights on BIGGER things. :-)
