It's Comic Collab time again, and this month's topic is "Black and White." Fortunately, this also coincides with #inktober, so I made a little something that works for both of these events (because I'm lazy).
It's nothing special, really, just a little ink drawing of two of my Hipsters characters:
Check out all of the cool stuff the other Comic Collab artists made:
Superstar webcartoonist Jojo "Beetlebum" Kretzschmar is on vacation in New England for a little bit, and asked some of his lesser known friends to draw guest comics for his blog while he is away. Since I only know New England from Stephen King novels and didn't have much to say about it, I made a comic about autobiographical webcomics instead. Or, more specifically, about why I don't (usually) make them.
I decided to draw the whole thing non-digitally, but kind of chose too small of a format and am not that happy with the results. Anyway, here it is (German version only):
A week ago, I once again went to Leipzig to draw a 24 hour comic with some of my dearest cartoonist friends. To mix things up a little, I decided to pre-script the comic this time. I originally thought this would save me some time, but the opposite turned out to be the case: because the script was so long and wordy, I had to fit more panels onto each page and more dialogue into each panel, thus requiring a lot more time and effort.
When it became clear that I couldn't finish it in time, I decided to just finish the lettering and scribbles and leave the pencil inks for later. That way, I at least managed to have 24 pages on the wall, even if many of them weren't quite final. In the week since, I've already finished most of them, but you're gonna have to wait a little while longer to read the comic, because I want to color it and then probably publish it in a little book together with Offline Dating, to which this one is a direct sequel.
Here are some work-in-progress pics you may have already seen on my Instagram or Twitter:
