Here I discuss the process of making a page of comics, from script, thumbnails and roughs, to pencils, inks and colours, plus a bit about some of the research involved. Recorded version of a talk given at live events.
Detailed notes on how the story takes shape from imagination to script to sketches to the finished page, with both the paper-pencil-ink method, and more current digital techniques.
Video film taken of the drawing process, from pencils to inks, sped up.
A ramble about the different nibs I use and then a demonstration of drawing with three of them: a Hunt and two Tachikawas.
