CRIMINAL inks


Partial inks...

i am curious, do you ink directly over the blue trace, relying solely on that, drawing on ing the outline and then the blacks or do you do some intermediate step in pencil, either on the very same page or on separate paper?
either way, i just love the decision of your trait.

i'm guessing here, but by the looks of it, you use some sort of felt-tipped pen to do your "pencils", scan it, lay down the lettering for placement, print it out in non-photo blue, then ink directly on that? it's just a guess though.

awesome work. very inspiring.

I start off doing the lettering and panel borders in Illustrator. This is printed out onto watercolour paper in pale blue. I then loosely 'pencil' the pages with a Magic Marker. Then straight to inks...

it's the gap between the magic marker and the final inks that amazes me: you should have a really conscious focus on what you are laying in ink, after all your gestures and faces always are compelling and fresh.
ok of course it comes with the workmanship, but hey it's cool.
