Once in a while, someone will look through one of my comics (that take about a year to make) and say, "It's too bad it's not in color." To which I reply, "YOU are a COLOR SNOB!"
Actually, I have nothing against color. But there are certain comics that I like that I think look great in black and white, and I don't think everything has to be in color. These comics have an aesthetic of their own.
I wouldn't be against coloring my comics, but it would definitely slow down my output to color each comic, and make each comic cost about four times as much. However, I do like to experiment with it from time to time in my comics. I colored this comic with Crayola markers and Prismacolor pencils. I enjoyed experimenting with Van Gogh style lines and colors to suggest emotional states.
