When I look at your stuff it gives me a bit of courage with my own art. I was always afraid to let my own style shine through, thinking I needed to add more hatching texture ect. Comics seem so busy recently. It is really refreshing and encouraging to see someone with such a unique, clean style. This stuff is definitely going down on my inspiration list, cause it makes me want to draw.

Nice! Cool to see your inks. Looks like you are filling in blacks with a thin pen?! Just playing with a little texture or don't like filling in blacks fast with a brush or something?

Well, the way I'm working is I'm inking off of relatively loose pencils. So the blacks aren't even spotted before I start finishing the drawing. Then, I'm using that thin pen that I use for all of it, a Pitt Pen XS, to "find" the blacks. Much like I would with a pencil. Basically, I'm just doing EXACTLY what I would do with a sharp pencil with this pen. THEN, I go over top of that very quickly, I'm talking like no time at all, with a brush and fill it in more. If I left it just pen strokes it would look too weak.

Essentially, I'm just inking like I would pencil, and I think that I always penciled too tight. So the natural extension was to pick up a pen in place of a pencil and lo and behold I am now inking without changing my thought process at all.

Is that a preferance for revealing a stylistic difference with the inking? As far as it seems, it is, I mean you don't just paint the black areas in pitch black with a brush, instead you go with inked areas those are combined with brush covering and pen defacing. I wonder how does it work with the colors also... How did you and the editor agreed on this exactly? (got me curious (= )

Heh. I just started doing it and liked the way it looked. I turned in pages looking like this and the editors liked it. And that's how it happened!
