This thing was written and drawn on a pretty tight deadline, and I avoided the Disney/anime eyes in favor of dot-eyes as that tends to appeal to more people. I went about the process for this piece in a new way- I outlined it the night I heard about the anthology, did large thumbnail/rough hybrids in my sketchbook the next day, and inked the pages on Bristol the day after. Not bad turnaround. For speed, I relied on a fude pen and my Akashiya brushpen, and the white details were added with a Signo Gel-pen.
Vigilante comic artist, illustrator, and comic craft blogger at www.nattosoup.blogspot.com. I have an MFA from SCAD in Sequential Art, which means I'm highly educated in the art of drawing funny picture books. I specialize in comics aimed at young girls, and enjoy the finer things in life- seinen manga, whiney autobio graphic novels, and science fiction.
