Inktober 2018 – Day 1

Inktober for October 1st – Showing inks old and new.

Here’s a Godzilla/Sally Forth mashup from last year’s Kaiju Theme Park storyline.

I pasted on the lettering (which is usually done in Photoshop, not on the original) so you can see the whole gag. The last panel was done digitally so that’s a paste-up as well. As you can probably guess, this one took awhile.

Sally Forth April 9, 2017 – Pencils and inks

A quick post showing what the pencils and inks look like for a Sally Forth Sunday page.

First the pencils…

Then the inks…

Lettering is laid in after I scan the artwork and make a digital file out of it.

For a complete list of the art supplies I use,
check out my previous post,  Comics – Tools of the Trade.


Here’s how it looks in color (courtesy of Comics Kingdom).

And here’s how it looked in today’s paper.

Newspaper reproduction is hit or miss. Between color smudges, misaligned color, the general beat up condition of the comic section and it not being shrunk proportionately (squashed length-wise so they’re taller and thinner) – your artwork isn’t always presented at it’s “best” (to say the least).

I did better that Dilbert this week though.
They got really stretched, so the characters all look to have gained a few pounds.


That’s all from the magical world of syndicated cartooning for now.
Deadlines looming…

Sally Forth Drop Panels – July to December 2016

Comic Strips are formatted different ways for different size requirements. The “drop panel” is a panel or tier of the strip that can be omitted because of size restrictions without affecting the gag or storyline.

For example, Here’s the Sunday strip for July 3, 2016 with the drop panel…
