Doug TenNapel original!

I attended CTN-X and was fortunate to see Doug TenNapel (creator of Earthworm Jim and a bunch of wonderful comic books I encourage everyone to collect) do a 45-minute demo of a sporadic comic page! Look!

And then, I was the super-lucky person who was quick to buy it– It’s framed on my wall right now. I really admire Doug’s fearlessness both in storytelling and inking. Draw details, then slather them with ink; force the lighting into submission! Make your readers lose all hope for your character and tie up the story in the last 6 pages! I was flattered that he enjoyed my hiccups. To be Yoda about his demo, “inspired, I am!” I wanted to upload the page here so everyone else can enjoy a good look at it.

WIP :: Comic

Epic side-project #2: 10-page comic book! Everything’s hand-inked and ink washed. (The lettering will be, too, when I get to it. I’m doing my speech bubbles blank on the original bristol, and will use animation cells for the lettering). The finished book will be on sale soon πŸ™‚
