Nike rejects

Hi! I started a tumblr just so I could ask you this amazing question: what medium do you use to color your comics? I've been experimenting with colored pencils and Crayola markers, but I am not loving the results. :( Thanks! — Asked by mmgarcia173

Hi there! These days I use mostly Pebeo Colorex inks, Holbein gouache, an old set of cube watercolors (I don’t remember what brand but if you want really nice ones, I’ve been eyeballing these Sennelier sets), and some Dr. Ph. Martin’s that I stole from my high school’s supply closet 13 years ago.

No art material is going to be magical (although I’ve had my suspicions about the Carbon Ink Pen) the most important thing is finding what works for you. Maybe you’re not a marker/pencil person, maybe you’re a paint person. Try it out! Get together with your artist friends and test out all their pens and paper until they ask you to stop.

Just don’t make art with food, I stopped doing that after a rotten banana incident in 99’. Turns out plaster is VERY porous.

“That’s the hardest part for me, just writing down ideas when I have them, no matter how stupid they are. I’ll always get ideas as I’m falling asleep at night, and it’s such a drag to get up and write it down, but I’m always glad when I do, even if it’s nonsense. Usually it turns into something.”

Thanks, Paris Review!
