process and typography

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.

Oh yeah and this.

Typography homework.  Sweet.

BTW, C2E2 was amazing.

Paint & Pastries

Hey Internet,

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.

Warning, this will take you to an external site.  Click on the image below:
