Process. Bells and stuff. Why did I confuse, "You use too many lines," with "you shouldn't crosshatch?" The past couple weeks I've been trying to ink my pages with no midtone. I guess this is what college is for. This still needs some work, but you know. Stuff.
You heard of Andrew Herbst right? You know, that granola, punk old-timey guitarist with the fresh bike who creates transitory folk-plight comics about hobos, vagrant children and creepy underground cities. Well below is a comic collaboration we worked on together. We collaborate on a lot of projects, one being how best to get drunk in my kitchen while talking about comics. Check out this strip, formatted first as a full newspaper spread, then modified as an interactive web comic. Concept and illustration by Andrew, and code by me.
