Set to Sea pg. 101
• A little late on this: the audio for this Heroescon panel I was on is online. It was me, Roger Langridge, and Jim Rugg talking about “craft and process,” moderated by Dustin Harbin. I was operating on like 3 hours of sleep and several cups of coffee, so I’m almost totally incoherent; all of my sentences are peppered with “likes” and usually trail off with “I don’t know.” I’m still trying to sort out my ideas on comics process, in the wake of Set to Sea, which took so many years to finish – trying to figure out the healthiest mindset for making art. Should I really be placing so much value on using the “right” tools (old-fashioned nib pens), making the “right” sort of marks (labor-intensive crosshatching)? I’ll probably talk about it more in the near future.
• Our local art supply store was giving away a display rack, so I snagged it. I’m not sure what it was originally supposed to hold, but now it’s displaying some of the pretty stapled comics that were getting lost on our bookshelves.
