Weekly update: Worries dreams and the joy of pencil.


Hope yer’ well.

As ever we kick off with some recent drawing book pages – the three above. And as ever, quickly scanned and given a splosh of colour – by ‘quickly’ the whole process can be done in 10 minutes.

I am trying to settle on a working process of this for my ‘proper’ comics – will be make things loads more efficient.

Also the crappy page quality in my new book has been overcome by using a thinner and less heavy pen. Now using a Winsor & Newton Fineliner – as opposed to my preferred Staedtler Pigment Liner (1.2). I was initially missing my thick linework, but this switch has made me rethink some of my drawing practices.

Also I am doing loads more pencil work now (example below), and have gotten back into just pure random drawing in pencil, which was pretty all I did when I was a lad. Great fun!

Until next week!
