Hey thanks! A number of people have asked for prints and T-shirts, so I’m working on it! I’ll make a post about it as soon as I get it figured out. I’m stretched really thin at the moment (show coming up, scripts to write, paintings for school, buncha other projects) but hopefully I can get some stuff together in a couple of weeks?
Thank you all so much, and I’m terribly sorry for not replying to all of you lovely people. But I do read my messages and I really appreciate them!
inspired by actual events
Whoops, I meant to answer a question publicly about the supplies I use because quite a few people have asked! Last text post I promise.
I’ve done all of my comics so far on 7x10” pieces of bristol with a 6x9” live area. I mostly use various sizes of black Pitt pens for my lines, though sometimes I like ink and nibs. For filling in my blacks I use a Pentel pocket brush or Speedball black india ink and brushes. I use a Winsor & Newton watercolor field kit for coloring, though for more complicated drawings I’ll use tubes of Winsor & Newton and Grumbacher watercolors and maybe some gouache.
I also use white ink to correct mistakes or for sharp highlights. I use white gouache (sometimes mixed with a bit of yellowish color) for softer highlights. My comics have been colored pretty lazily so far so I haven’t really done any of that fancy stuff in them. As I get faster at drawing hopefully the quality will increase!
Hello yes and thank you! I’ve been getting a lot of these questions and deliberating whether or not to answer them publicly. A lot of the stuff that has been asked is stuff I’ve been intending to reveal (more or less) in later comics. Which I guess goes to show that I do, in fact, have some greater story arcs planned. I will clarify that Clementine is a girl, just a very intentionally androgynous one. I won’t go into it here because I’d rather just address it in the context of the story.
Thanks for the interest and I hope this helped! Also I apologize to all the people I haven’t been able to respond to! I’ve been a bit busy and I’m sure y’all know how that is.
sorry there’s no joke this time but don’t worry we will be resuming your regularly scheduled jokes!
Wow thank you! I don’t actually think I’m very good at drawing if I don’t have reference pictures/models. I’m pretty slow at inventing things, too. I’ve been drawing since I was a kid, though, so there’s something to be said for that. Definitely a lot of practice, and I improved a lot with schooling as well.
For the past three years I’ve spent way more time painting than I have drawing, so these comics are kind of a weird difficult thing for me, even though I used to do a lot of silly, morbid comics as a kid (what am i talking about i am still pretty much a kid). Each one seems to be getting better than the last, though! I’ve got lots of ideas for future ones. This is, like, the first thing I haven’t gotten bored with after being at it for a couple of weeks and I kind of can’t stand to leave my drafting table.
Anyways, thanks so much. PUBLIC SHOUTOUT TO ALL THE OTHER HEPCATS WHO HAVE SENT ME NICE MESSAGES/SAID NICE THINGS hopefully I don’t seem like a fuckass when I am replying to people.
this is bad i am sorry
