People often ask me how I make my comics and what program do I use etc, so I thought I’d do a video on how I make my comics.

It was a really big step for me to go from traditional art to making comics digitally. I think it uses a different part of the brain or something. For the art I previously did I usually had a reference to work from, but for comics I need to draw something just out of my head and work out the pacing and facial expressions. I was forced to change to working digitally even though in the beginning I drew with pen and painted with watercolours on the very first comics. It was just too difficult to do that and then have to scan the painting. It just took too long. Things are much quicker with a tablet (Bamboo Manga).

I hope that those who have been thinking about doing something like this can see how easy it is and feel inspired to try themselves.
