I’m drawing the final illustrations for the Friends Against Bullying book with a fountain pen, using Noodlers ink, on layout paper. The paper is translucent and lets me trace over the rough pencil drawings. This means I can work quickly and keep a nice, loose line.
The other great thing about this paper is that it is way cheaper than the heavyweight cartridge, or lightweight Bristol, which I use for my Arctic Circle comic strips.
Here are a couple of illustrations from the first chapter:
The next job is to start laying it out in Adobe InDesign.
