So my local comic shop, House of Secrets (Hi Paul, Erik and Amy!) also occasionally publishes special projects of their own, under the name Art of Fiction. One of them is a title they call Five Color Comics. The interesting thing about it is that they have each panel of the stories drawn by a different artist. Bit of an exercise in herding cats for them sometimes, I’m sure, but the results are interesting.
I contributed to volume one, and they recently published volume two. Which I was also invited to contribute to. You can see my panel contribution here, sans captions. No “Photoshoppery” going on; it was done the old-school way, directly on paper with pen, ink and colored pencils. In context with the other panels, it’s interesting to see how there still manages to be a certain overall cohesiveness to the story, despite the fact we all have such different styles.
Watch out! It looks like someone’s foot is gonna get shot off!
