Weekend re-cap: I went to 24 Hour Comic Day on Saturday night… I was there from about 9pm till 2am. And it was a blast… the turnout was awesome… way more people than I was expecting to see when I walked in. And there was a wealth of talented folks making comics… it was a wonderous environment… and what a sense of community!!! I wish I could have stayed for the whole time… maybe next year. If yer’ interested… check out my buddy Chuck Larntz blog which had hourly updates throughout the whole event - http://24hoursfromq-town2012.blogspot.com/
Today… I did some inking during my lunch. I know… Inking… at lunch… that means I didn’t use my Cintiq. It’s been a while since I did anything ‘serious’ with Pen and Paper. I find that most times I end up just using my paper sketches for reference when I move over to digital. (Throw them in the background of Sketchbook Pro, and ‘tidy’ up my pencils before digital inkings begin)
Today…. Today I actually pulled out my Micron Brush Pen… (which sadly has pretty much stayed in my little pen and marker case for the better part of the last 2 years). Today… it saw the light of day. Today… it got used. Today… I think I kinda fell in love with the little bugger. Why has it taken me so long to warm up to this pen??? Anyway… I didn’t use it on everything for this piece, but on the parts I did use it… I really liked what happened.
And as a reminder… this weekend I’ll be at New Mexico Tri-Con – at the 7000BC booth on Saturday and some of the day on Sunday. Come by and check it out if yer’ in the area!
Expect a post-con update as usual… I’m lookin’ forward to getting out there again!!!
Tune in next time… same Bat-time…
