A couple of years ago, I decided to experiment with a "sketch comic" for lack of a better term. I was getting geared up to participate in 24-Hour Comic Day and was trying to work out a faster style that was loose and interesting, yet would seem sophisticated...ish. The key point being that each page had to be created in under an hour. I ended up doing something different, but I had these 6 pages on hand so I used them to make a little single page folding 'zine that I give away to kids at comics shows. It has instructions on the back about how to fold the zine and a little how to draw a superhero, and of course, my website info and such, so it became a little promotional item. I also experimented with fast and loose coloring techniques in Photoshop. So each page was drawn and inked in an hour or less and the color was added later with 15 minutes or so spent on each page for that.

Anyway, I haven't posted them here before for some reason, so I thought I would go ahead and share them. Especially since I am planning to embark on a similar, but far more ambitious "experiment" shortly! Stay tuned for details on that.


And now, here is the 6-page 'zine: "A Platypus of Mars!"
