So today’s ODAD is drawn from one of my favorite actors, Humphrey Bogart. Compare yesterday’s drawing with this one and check out the difference when drawing from a reference image.
Also, I might stay in the “Film Noir” genre for a while. The black and white images work really well with pen and ink.
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge fan of Pen and Ink. I’m also a huge fan of adventure comics. So imagine my delight in discovering Terry and the Pirates. I came across a few panels in a favorite book of mine and I was floored. I immediately ran down to the used book shop and, lo and behold, a gorgeous volume was sitting on the shelf–on sale no less! If I could write a comic strip, this is the strip I would write. Check this out:
And the storytelling is top-notch. I can’t tell you how excited I am to have discovered this strip.
Nerd boy, out!
