Once again, I somehow managed to get away without sketches for one comic this week, Kitty Tip Number One. Not really sure why. Guess it was just a good drawing night for me. I finished the coloring on the second two while visiting home for the holidays, with my laptop and a tiny Wacom tablet that’s not even an Intuos. It’s always hard being away from my Cintiq (a big Wacom monitor I draw directly on), but I get used to the tablet pretty quickly. And I got the sketches and drawings done on the Cintiq anyway, and that’s the hard part. Monday’s comic will be challenging for me though, as I’ll be drawing it from scratch on the tablet. Hopefully I won’t snarl too much. And hey, if I do, I can always break out the old standby: pen and paper.
