whoa This comic is beautiful. Do you do this all by hand, or on a tablet, or what? How did you learn to draw like that anyway? This is the best art i've seen in a while.

Good question Jayge. I'll be more than happy to share my creative process with you. Thank you very much for the nice complement by the way ^^. First I start with a basic script that I write on ms word. Then from there I storyboard the comic on regular printer paper. After that I take the rough drafts and then sometimes I end up making changes on the final boards when I do read the drafts, but I first measure the boards, then I begin pencil work on them. As soon as the pencilling is completed I go to hand inking them with a classic dip pen. The boards are then set to dry and after they're dry I erase the pencil lines then take the boards to a local copy shop to reduce them to reasonable size for my scanner. Then from the scanner, I import them into paint shop pro and that's where the rest of the work gets done, including the bubbles. And yes, to answer your question about the tablet, I couldn't live without it, it's my best friend. All of these skills were taught at the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, where I first started working with a tablet. Then I got so used to it that the mouse was no longer satisfactory for me so my mom helped me to invest in a tablet, and now here I am, working away with the tools I love.

Interesting. So you're a serious artist then. The whole process sounds like it would take a good 3-5 hours per panel. Do you any serial work or comission(I think I spelled that wrong) art?

I'd really love to do comission serial work but the only problem is, I'm so busy with my full time job and the comic that I really can't find time to fit it in. But I do illustrations for people if they want them. If they have a character that they'd like interpereted in my style, I'm more than happy to do so. But I'm more adept at anthro than I am at drawing human faces, and I do admit to it. The process takes so long that I can only handle one project at a time. But I am thinking of getting help once this series goes to print on paper. Then I can make room for other projects in need of launching.
