For the first time in ages I cracked open the ink bottle and picked up a real pen and nib. I switched to all digital work flow last Spring so it was kinda fun to get back to the drafting table for a change. The above is part of a little drawing I did (might post full image later) My hand is a little shaky from what I’d like but you can’t beat real ink for a really fresh line. However, I really like the ability to adjust and fix mistakes the way you can with digital….and no erasing pencil lines!
The battle of paper and pixels continues!
There’s a great little write up about the National Academy of Engineering series from September in this month’s PE Magazine. It was a lot of fun and hopefully we’ll do more!
After a few crazy busy weeks (what is it with this Fall?) I’m starting to put things back to normal around here. One of the things on my list is to point everyone in the direction of my friend Mike Cope’s great new webcomic Storytime Comics!
Kids and parents alike will have fun flipping through this site. Also, as Mike adds new comics pretty much every week you can see how this would eventually work really well as an iPad app! Definitely a great site to bookmark and check in on every week!
