Hey, so if you think this strip looks a bit odd… yeah, you’d be right. I’ve been practicing with two different pens a lot lately, and I thought I’d give them both a try. I definitely like the first one, a Zebra Brush I recently received from Bobby Timony at the Super Wildpig Show. It’s smooth, and has great line weight variance.
The second two panels were done with my Pentel PocketBrush, which does not seem to work as well. I used that one to do the Calvin and Hobbes homage a couple weeks ago, and it worked better for that strip than this one. I’m going to have to figure out why that is before I use it to ink again.
Until then, probably going to stick to the Zebra for now. Thanks, Bobby!
Sorry we threw you all for a loop this past week.
Seems some people were having a hard time wrapping their head around the idea of Todd and Robyn hooking up again. Don’t worry, we’ll be exploring that in strips to come. I find half the fun of this strip is finding out why the characters do what they do. I’m sure we’ll find out sooner or later.
Have a nice weekend everyone!
