Behind The Scenes

A photograph of a comic strip drawn by Nathan Olsen from Haiku Comics before it is inked.

I thought I’d give everyone a little peek at what the comic looks like before I ink it. I print panel guides onto a sheet of 2-ply bristol board and then pencil with a vermillion Col-Erase. (I find the light orange color easiest to remove in Photoshop.) Inking is done with Prismacolor Fine Line Markers and I use a Pilot G-2 for lettering.
