I really experimented with this one. I drew twice as big, added intentional blacks, used a ruler, drew full-figure characters as much as possible, added a tier, eliminated gutters, and tried to tell a story that had no punchline.
Here are some introduction comics I did back in 2012; they still serve pretty well as an introduction to new readers.
I’ll be posting new strips next week, so please tell your friends and online compatriots!
Very similar to my approach.
You can enter to win a copy of my wife’s and my new book, The Zoo Box from Goodreads. There’s 5 copies so you’ve got a good chance at a free book. Spread the word if you’ve been reading my comics and would like to help me out.
Mr. Wolf is back!
Cover of PRATFALL, in progress on 8/16, then the pretty-much-finished version (save for a little photoshop magic) on 8/17. Went with something a little different for this one, and pleased with how it turned out, but now I have #StickyFingers.
Going to have a 3 page comic in Rob Kirby’s new anthology, due out in time for SPX.
Hey, I was just interviewed on The Comix Claptrap! If you want to hear all about how I spend my day, Mr. Wolf, The Zoo Box, and what pen I use.
Thanks to Gina at First Second for taking these photos. The Zoo Box is out now! If you teach or have children or know children who are starting to read or who like comics this is for them! So proud of this book! Check out the amazon listing then buy it at your local bookstore.
I’m trying this again.
Here’s this one again. It’s still summer, so relax.
