Because it requires a little more time and patience, I haven’t used a sable brush to draw a strip for a while now. Working on the film has pretty much precluded that. But the tree in Tuesday’s strip just seemed to call out for a little brush work…so out it came.
My drawing hand might regret this promise, come Monday, but I really wanna do this as a “thank you” to all of you. When you guys buy a book, or poster…you make my job — my livelihood — possible. To say thank you for that, I always give out free sketches any time I meet folks in person, but there are tens of thousands of you I’ve never met. So here’s your chance: Get a sketch in any book you pick up today!
*(Oh! And no specific sketch or dedication requests, please. That’d be a logistical nightmare, on my end. But have no fear: Imma put in book-appropriate, awesome sketches in your books!)
