For the last couple of months, I have been trying to learn how to draw with digital tools. I have been using SketchBook Pro, Fifty-Three’s Paper app for iPad, Procreate for iPad, Manga Studio Ex5, as well as drawing in Adobe Photoshop. This particular illustration was first done as a little thumbnail using a pencil. I then inked the drawing using Manga Studio 5 EX and designed and coloured it using Adobe Photoshop.Lucky Cat Series 8. This illustration is for Zoë Baxter’s excellent radio show, Lucky Cat. She is already at series 8. I’m always grateful for the opportunity to draw anything for her.

Here’s a look at a recent comic book I just finished. The story was originally done using rough pencils for the story, I then used Manga Studio 5 EX to digitally ink the pages. I don’t like the lettering in Manga Studio so I exported the job to Adobe Photoshop CS6. I created the cover using InDesign CS6.  I tend to write stories about running away and I wanted this one to be my very last story about that subject. I’m working on a crime story next.

How can i buy this comic book?
