I’m trying out some custom brushes in Photoshop and decided to work digitally on the new Starcrossed comic and thought I would share the process. I really like the pencil brush. You can build up the lines just like a traditional pencil. Obviously working in Photoshop has some advantages as well, especially for this strip in particular.
Jack Slade and I talk shop on Twitter all the time. It was a real treat to have him on Comics Coast to Coast to talk about his new comic strip Scaredemy. With some professional time as a toy designer notched into his belt, Jack puts a fun, friendly spin on your idea of how classic – and not so classic – monsters, ghouls and goblins came to be. It can be taught! We got to talk to Jack about what happens at Scaredemy after hours, art, puns and process.

Comics Coast to Coast Episode 171: Adrian Ropp – To Infinity, and Beyond!
Two weeks ago we had the pleasure of sitting down with Adrian Ropp. Adrian was a guest on Comics Coast to Coast back on episode 128. At the time, his comic Chim Chum and the Portly Samurai was a black and white, single plane gag cartoon. Fast forward to today and Chim Chum has made the transition to a long form comic.
Adrian has also been extraordinarily busy as the lead storyboard artist on the new video game from Disney, Disney Infinity. With NDAs lifted with the games release on August 18th, we were able to talk to Adrian about both projects.
