T.A.I.LS. Update

I’m trying to improve the lettering in my comics. I’m doing them by hand now with an Ames lettering guide. I invested in two expensive ink pens, Rotring Artpens. These are the kind Stan Sakai uses in Usagi Yojimbo.

One obstacle in getting work done for me is space! We were in tight quarters before with four kids. Then we had a baby and he took over the house! My daughter is going to college in the fall and said she wouldn’t mind if I used her room to draw in while she’s gone. She’s an artist to so we’ve fixed her room up as kind of a studio.

That may seem funny, but to me it is all part of “clearing the runway for take-off”. It’s tough to use the dining room table and then have to shove everything away so we can eat dinner!
