Check out my published books, read some comics, take a look at some of my illustration work and try to figure out what I mean by ‘Stunt Drawing’.
Usually a mix of both to some extent. I really like pen or pencil and watercolour. This is often digitally adjusted with Photoshop or Procreate. Sometimes the image is made entirely digitally, but I prefer the sensation of working on paper with ink.
I get asked this with alarming frequency. I get that watercolour effect in my work by using watercolour.
I’ve tried a bunch of inks, and my favourite by a long stretch is the Rohrer & Klingner Lotte ink.
Uni Pin 0.3; waterproof ink and pretty easy to use. Pilot Falcon EF; really nice and expressive fountain pen. Blade Pen; I made it, I use it occasionally for larger pieces.
Pencils – Kuru Toga 0.5; it rotates the lead as you draw which is a treat.
I also really like the Palomino Blackwing pencils.
A mixture of Windsor & Newton Pro and Sennelier half-pans and sometimes Brusho Colourcraft powdered ink. Fabulously colourful and unpredictable.
For longer comics, Goldline cold pressed watercolour paper. I got about a thousand sheets a few years ago and I’m still working my way through it all.
For other stuff, either a Seawhite of Brighton Sketchbook or a Leuchtturm 1917 notebook. Whatever is to hand, really.
If someone wants to buy it, I’ll sell it. Otherwise it sits in a dark drawer in my studio.
