All my signings are at Drawn & Quarterly, booth 1629.I might be giving away free doodles with book purchases! I like doing things like that. I might bring a small bundle of original artwork too!
4:30-5:30pm HUMOR IN GRAPHIC NOVELS AND ILLUSTRATION panel in Room 26AB with Mimi Pond and Drew Friedman, hosted by my nemesis Tom Spurgeon!
See ya there!
This is kinda sneaky, but I don’t mind it being sliiiightly unpleasant to read this comic online (for free) because I hope that eventually people will be motivated to read a printed book (for $). That said, I might realize this is a dumb business model and set up a nice independent site for Coyote D to live. Or create some sort of subscription-based e-book thing? I’m no good at this.
For now, start at the bottom and read up here.
Also: Thank you. So much.
I’m drawing most stuff digitally these days, using custom brushes made by Kyle T Webster. And even drawings I make by hand get cleaned up in Photoshop, so if I mess up and smudge everything, it’s not a huge deal. Computers!
You can lay down a clean piece of paper under the meat of your drawing hand to prevent smudging, sometimes that helps. Sometimes I wrap a piece of toilet paper around where I grip my pen, if it’s an incontinent pen.
I know you’ve heard this advice before, but it’s true: keep trying materials and papers until you find something you like. Don’t get stuck with one way of doing things! That said, I really like Stonehenge paper + Muji sketchbooks + this carbon ink pen at the moment. Warning: this pen is highly incontinent.
