1927: Serene, Colorado
I made the paper out of all sorts of “office paper”; old copier paper I use for writing rough drafts, old phone bills, electric bills, etc. Sometimes letters, numbers, or bits of text will survive the soaking and blending. If it’s really distracting, I can scrape it off the surface with an exacto knife. There’s a dollar sign on the fence post, and “$68″ where the barbed wire would be, and I think I’ll leave them in as it seems fitting to the story.
A page from the 1927: Serene, Colorado comic I’m working on. I didn’t do any talking or dub any music on the video because I wanted to capture the sound of the nib. There’s no penciling, just straight to ink, then some watercolor.
