Jim and Pam – 27 Seconds

Did the Office ever have a prettier scene than this one?

Ladamania!

I have a lot of love for ep. 211 “Booze Cruise” and I wanted to do justice to the equally lovely and heartbreaking 27 Seconds of Silence scene. I played around with all sorts of layouts, but I decided to stitch together a bunch of frames to get my reference. I also decided to try out doing a background on a different paper and putting it together in Photoshop. I’ve already fussed around a lot with the background version and probably will more in the future, but it’s presentable.

Jim and Pam – Swaying (Isn’t Dancing)

In honor of the 10th anniversary of the first airing of “The Client” and this great Jim and Pam moment.

Ladamania!

That’s right, more PB&J! I really love this scene from ep 207 “The Client” where Jim and Pam share earbuds and dance sway to a song, one of the great “little moments” that they had.

The background was drawn on a separate paper and added in digitally, and I really like the result! Here’s the no background version (which I also like)

Pam Pong Round 17: Booze Cruise

211pp-original-biggerPrevious Round, Christmas Party: Thanks to Yankee Swap, Jim spends most of the episode worried his gift to Pam (complete with a card saying how he feels) will end up in the wrong hands. Pam comes through and gets Jim’s gift back (but Jim swipes the card before she can read it). Final Score +10

As Katy does her cheer, Pam does a little head bob for Jim: +1
Jim and Pam go hang out on the deck alone: +2

Pam tells Katy her engagement seems to have “no end in sight”: +1

Final Score, +1: Again Jim was on the verge of confessing his feelings to Pam and again he couldn’t quite do it, and with Pam and Roy’s wedding date set, Jim appeared ready to throw in the towel. But there’s silver lining in the form of, believe it or not, Michael. When Michael encourages Jim to go for it, Jim seems to seriously consider Michael’s words, and we see there may be a little fight left in our favorite lovelorn salesman.
