Hey!
I always enjoy your illustration work (that's a given!) but it's hard to say much when I don't know what it's about.
How come we never get any dialogue?

aahh...well..i have to supply these without dialogue-although we get a ''script' of sorts..
these strips are used to illustrate the audio reading on cd-
the publishers drop the text in weeks from now..and the way they lay it out is hokey..also they often change the grammar..phrasing etc..which is great for posing to...!
so -here's the deal..make me laugh and email me back with your take on the panels-with lots of profanity..
i knew a guy once who dropped a hammer on his toe..and he swore for two minutes straight without repeating himself once..amazing-
good to hear from you elliot..
please sell me the moomin drawing..serious now..look -serious face...xx

God I love these little comics you seem to do all the time - so full of fun.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments on my blog.

And to answer your question:

The way I get the texture in PS...
It's nothing more than some of the fancier more sophisticated new brushes that come standard with Photoshop CS. Give em a whirl and share the results please. Or if you are still not figuring thinsg otu drop me an e-mail and I'll see if I can help.

The Moomin drawing - the one where he's sitting on the hill with the moon on the black sky?
If so it's a digital image - download it and do whatever you like with it.
If it's one of the others let me know which one and you can have it.

thanks elliot-for that surprise image you sent through..
a gents lunchtime refresher no less..
it all made total sense..and with so much variety..you must have a comprehensive collection of images to choose from.
i just kept thinking there should be a guide book in this technique..a best seller surely -for the discerning lone gentleman tourist/hobbyist etc...ahem..
