Diary comic: Restaurant Interruption

October 28, 2009 at 5:15 am 2 comments

This one is so brief and so silly I couldn’t resist posting it. However, it also marks my first use of two exciting new techniques. I painted (albeit poorly) the ink-wash background of this page on a separate piece of watercolor paper and scanned it in. Coloring it only took a second, Alison Bechdel style. Also, I inked the thickist lines on the page with my new favorite tool — a cut piece of bamboo I bought at an art store in Boston this weeekend. For art nerds, it has the uniform line of a marker except with live ink! It seemed to hold about as much as a Crow Quill nib does.

P.S.: Vote on the below post!
