For my graphic memoir of twenty years with Murray, I'm concentrating now mainly on writing the script. The script is the backbone of any graphic novel. There's no point in making cartoons, after all, till you know what the text is going to be! So I'm working mostly on that part, which may take me a year to finish.
In the meantime I'm practicing drawing and making cartoons. Since January I've been learning Photoshop to see if it can help me make cartoons. Of course I do and will always continue to do the drawing the old-fashioned way, with pen and ink--there's no substitute for that, nor should there be. But I thought Photoshop might help me with speech balloons, lettering, sizing the panels, and applying tone (grays). Here's the first result. It's a practice series of panels that I call "Scooter Reverie." This is the beginning of it ... to be continued.
