Desperately Seeking: Energetic Simple Lineweight
Here again with another installment about all THINGS UNDONE.
This time I’m sharing an example of the inkline I was looking for in the process of developing this book. The cartooning wasn’t in the bag either. I was pushing for more of a big-head-cutesy-kind-of-thing. The purpose behind it, well I really wanted to show that I can cartoon. I wanted my characters to have the flexibility and strong silhouettes that I think help me express their emotions if in almost an iconic kind of way.
There was no doubt I’d be inking this with a brush, but unlike earlier books I wanted to it feel easy and breezy. Just strong shapely information without a lot of noodling.
The main characters Rick Watts and Natalie Meade are in one of those long-term relationships…like 7 years long. Just in time for things to start getting a little weird.
