Graphic Memoir Workshop: Inking.

Let’s put in in ink!

For the spring session,  my weekly graphic memoir workshops are on a drop-in basis. Each week will bring a different topic.

This week’s graphic memoir workshop is about the inking process: creating the black lines. We will first look at the work of various accomplished artist. Then, we’ll talk about tools (brushes, nib pens, and technical pens) and how to use them to produce beautiful black lines and special effects. We will first practice using them on various types of paper and then you’ll get started on your own page.

This is what I’m inking right now. Yes, I’m working again on the Québec-California series.
