NEGATIVE SPACE #1: Cinematic evolution

negative_space01.jpg

The only hand-drawing I do these days is the occasional storyboard or logo sketch, so when the idea for this cartoon popped in my head, it seemed like a good excuse to pick up on an old love of mine. Drop a comment if you like it and maybe I’ll post more in the future. I’m still not sure if I’ve found the right balance between wacky and naturalistic, but I love the combination of fineliner strokes with digital coloring and added film grain.

I’ve been suffering from a major digital handicap since my laptop broke down. The situation is still far from ideal (as I type this on an ancient iMac, I’m sitting on my living room’s wooden floor), but at least I’m online again. Expect new posts in the days to come.

Happy New Year, y’all!

    Great cartoon, Peet. I hope you’ll do more of these for us…

    I intend to, Girish. The guys at the 24Lies forum have been encouraging, as well. Thanks for stopping by!

    Still stuck on the iMac, Syb. Let’s hope it doesn’t take much longer for them to fix it…
