I won’t have a fullpage for questions in YZ3, but I might put in about a halfpage, so send me your weird compliments and disturbing inquiries here.
Anonymous asked you: Your line work flows beautifully Do you ink over pencil ?
Thanks! For most of my illustration & comics yes, unfortunately you have to submit fairly decent sketches to artdirector/editor, and consider composition/proportions in a longer story. Which is why my freehand sketchbook stuff looks much more lively.
metkolina asked you: Did you Study?
In a Way.
classychassiss asked you: Your illustrations are very beautiful! I was just curious and I hope you don’t mind me asking: what do you use to color? Do you do traditional or digital, a mix of both? And if it’s digital, would you mind me asking what brushes you use?
Thanks, I usually color everything in Photoshop with a standard round pencil, though I sometimes do ink wash overlays and then color that layer(s) separately.
finys asked you: Here to ask: I was wondering, what kind of tool do you use to ink your illustrations, traditionally? Like, a brush or a knife or a pen with india ink, just curious y’know? Also here to tell you how much I love you.
#2 watercolor brush or a small nib. Thanks, keep loving me!
Anonymous asked you: Hey, I really appreciate your work and a big fan of your style. I’m not sure if you’ve touched on this topic before but I was wondering what advice you have for Illustrators starting out and getting work as an Illustrator. Thanks for the great art and thanks for reading !
I wish someone would answer that question for me. Thanks for the compliment, but I’m not the right person to ask—I have massive holes in slippers. Both of them.
Anonymous asked you: Please tell me you’re a Joann Sfar fan.
I like his style in Klezmer, and I generally enjoy shaky line artists. Nicolas De Crecy has always been a big influence.
