I took a chance and drew today’s comic on vellum bristol board as opposed to the smooth bristol I usually use. It was pretty different from what I’m used to, but I like it! In time I think it will become my new favorite.
Speaking of which, a lot of people have asked me lately if the comic has gone back to digital. It hasn’t! I do “pencil” each page on the computer, but I print them out for paper inking over a lightbox. It’s really not as round-about as it sounds, and I’ve grown fairly efficient with it. When things aren’t so crazy I’ll try and write up a new tutorial on the process.
