Wordless comics

Image
Part 1 of my comic response to Chris Downes and how I upset him three years ago at a comic workshop. We also have a collaboration comic on the same topic which we should be able to share soon. Two facts to keep in mind, 1- I think wordless comics are indeed comics (and have value like any other comic), 2- Chris Downes and I are friends.

Epilogue to 'Rose Parade'

Open publication - Free publishing - More auscomics Here are 4 pages I drew over the course of many months this year. They were originally intended as a kind of epilogue to my next comic 'Rose Parade' which will be the fourth in the sketchbook series out soon. I ended up dropping the epilogue as it was becoming just another obstacle to publish the fourth and final book. I hope you like it. Above is an embedded flash based widget from the website Issu .

Thought I'd give IF a shot this week. I'm trying out a new drawing challenge that I invented for myself. The idea was to take three minutes to complete each stage of drawing a comic. That meant the writing, lettering, pencilling, and inking, finishing up. All up it should take 15 minutes. I used a timer to help me stay on target. I think the challenge needs some tweaking and undertaking three panels was really pushing it. Perhaps I should try two minutes per stage, per panel. Edit: Now that I am back home I have scanned this in properly and coloured (as opposed to the phone pic above)

New inking test

Image
Here is the result of a new inking test.  I have been going through this indecision for quite some time now, trying to find the right combination of pencils pens and paper to make comics with. On one hand I think this is a very silly distraction from making comics buton the other hand it is crucial to making the comics I want to produce to the level of quality I want. For a number of years now I have stuck to using my trusty .05 tech pen with a combination of no pencil or HB pencil. And more recently (2008) I started using a l ight blue col-erase pencil to good effect. However my work started changing and I wanted to draw on a larger scale and my tech pen wasn't making the cut (Examples, Hemp , old man , Star gazing , which were ok but I felt they could be better) Then I have started trying to make myself use a nib for my more recent published pieces, which you can see here and here . However this just seems to take an awful amount of time to complete one page, someth
