Behind The Curtain

As some of you already know, I’ve been changing my work flow up quite a bit.  Over the last few weeks, I’ve been experimenting with going 100% digital.  What that means is, instead of drawing with pencil on Bristol, then inking with traditional black pen, I now do everything in Photoshop.  One of my latest acquisitions that makes this much easier is this contraption called a Wacom Cintiq.  It is a graphic pen tablet that allows me to draw directly onto a screen instead of a digitizer pad.  This method mimics the traditional pencil/pen on paper and it allows me to be more comfortable drawing directly in Photoshop, it’s quicker coloring my strips, and I no longer have to burden myself making up boards to draw on.  A fellow cartoonist pal Mike Witmer of Pinkerton Comics turned me onto this method and I took the plunge.  I can honestly say, I very happy with the results.  I think this will be my new style for the foreseeable future.
