Espen: One of my favourite Pat pages. What I like about it, you ask? Well, I got to draw James Joyce, Lynchian curtains and singing leprechauns. What’s not to like? What really clinches it for me, though, is Joyce’s accusatory and needlessly hostile tone at the end.
Oh, and it’s also my first attempt at dabbling with “night colours”.
Steinar: A favorite of mine too, mostly because the colours are superb and fit the scenario perfectly. I don’t know exactly where I stole any of this from. I probably lifted bits from the things I was into at the time; The Pogues, James Joyce, Twin Peaks and … leprechauns. «Pogue mahone» is Irish slang for «kiss my arse» by the way. And Joyce actually was to become a tenor at one point. Why Old Aloysius is so angry there at the end is an enigma which will «keep the professors busy for centuries», as he would say.
