Chapter 1 - Page 58: Of Oreos and Hocus-Pocus

I've always felt the livingroom was awfully... stark. I designed it similar to what's seen in the game, knowing full well how bland and... I dunno, threadbare(?) it looked, but I wanted to keep it that way, just for a laughable throwback to the simple 8-bit design of the game. But dang, after drawing and coloring all these pages, it seems to me that I should have at least succumbed to wallpaper, windows and a light fixture! What kind of psycho house -doesn't- have windows around its front door? And without those windows or an immediate light source aside from the kitchen window, how could it be so bright indoors? That's the price of adhering 100% to the game's design for the house's exterior first, THEN putting together the interior. You look at the inner layout and realize it doesn't conform to the outer structure at all. In the game, the front door, as seen from the the livingroom, is brown and square at the top, with no built-in window, but outside, it's gray with a rounded top and window, AND the doorknob's on the wrong side! So I changed it to fit the outside appearance. At least that's one claim to consistency I can make.

I need a life.

Yeah, okay, so I went a little overboard on the jokes here, and I’m not even sure if they’re funny. That’s kenisu.

Not Mark II... Mark I!
Oddly enough, the post I uploaded this to in the forum got a downvote. Apparently, someone has a childhood trauma involving Jack-in-the-Boxes (well, I know *I* do, but...).

This is my homage to the image that I attribute as my very first impression of EarthBound Zero/Mother 1. Years back, before I even began playing it, I came across the image on the back of the Mother 1 soundtrack on this site (when it was still Earthbound.net), and it still haunts me to this day. Three years after playing through the game, I found out that it was actually a screencap from an old commercial aired on Japanese TV when the game was first released in 1989. That took away a big chunk of the mystery surrounding my enrapturement of this image (it was a "the magic is gone" sort of experience), but I will forever treasure this as the one icon to represent everything the first Mother game symbolizes.
Albeit I changed it from the exact image to a few moments before, when Lloyd points to the glowing summit of Holy Loly.

The line "George use to be a journalist" is my tribute to the Encyclopedia Mother, which gives a more detailed account of the history of George and Maria (tells how they got together and fell in love, etc.). By the time I finally got the Encyclopedia (a couple of months back?), I had already had in my head more-or-less what I wanted the entire prologue to encompass, so when I translated the George-and-Maria backstory in the Encyclopedia, I found that account didn't fit 100% with mine, and it was too late to change the pages I had already illustrated, and I was also unwilling to change the ideas I had for the remainder of the prologue. However, I was able to work in the idea that George was a big-time journalist for a famous newspaper, and that his work was what brought him to Mothersday Town, where he met Maria.
However, it's only this wink that connects my story with the Encyclopedia's.

Not much to say here, except yep, this is Mothersday. I think for my next establishing shot, I’ll try a two-page spread. :)
