the hipster edition

This is an early morning edition.  For some reason I woke up at 7 am and couldn’t get back to sleep despite the fact that I didn’t get to sleep until 2.  Today’s post consists of the pages I created for the upcoming Mission District Guide by Skodaman Press.  There are many different stories in this amazing idea for a graphic novel that each cover different aspects and characteristics of San Francisco’s Mission District.  I had the privilege to cover Hipsters in my story.

Unfortunately I could not include text with my pages, since the script was written by another individual, and I didn’t have the rights to it.  So if you want to know what the story is about you’ll just have to purchase the book!

Hopefully I won’t get into trouble for leaving the title in, I just feel like a little bit of text needs to stay.

There it is! For this comic I used all nib pens dipped in ink wells, instead of the brush work you have seen in my previous posts.  If I were to do it all over again I would most likely use brushes through the entire comic.  I love using pens but I always feel like i’m rushing  through the artwork.  Brushes force me to slow down and really attempt to get every stroke absolutely perfect.

These pages were a lot of fun, and the research was equally as fun.  I look forward to working on similar projects in the future.  Well that’s it for today folks!
