Color test


One to two pages a day is generally considered to be a good pace in comics. This is daunting when trying to do a 400 page book on the side. Here's a semi-productive form of procrastination - thinking about how to add one color to the inked pages. I still have a long way to go, and a few things to learn...

I've been calming my nerves by drawing to the audio-recording of "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. It's a gruesome story but somehow comforting - in the way that everything has been stripped down to what is essential...simplified into black and white, all choices based on instinct and faith.

  1. Looks good! And yes, I can relate to frustration with dauntingly long projects. If you just keep at it, you will be surprised by the amount of work you can get done. One page at a time...

    PS: Wish I could have joined you and Dave!

  2. Thanks Jed! I will try. It would be great to have you up here for a visit - are we going to see you at Stumptown?
