I brought my first computer in 2000. Only recently (2014) have I started using it to draw my comics with (instead of drawing/inking them on paper and scanning the pages and tweaking them) Photoshop. Back in the halcyon days of 1993, when I was illustrating this comic, computers were just an intimidating dream. Now I don’t know if I’ll be able to go back to paper; the flexibility, the malleability of Photoshop and Storyboard Pro is too seductive. And the loss of the secondary income stream of original art sales would only be a concern on hypothetical Marvel and DC superhero projects.
For instance, Photoshop would have allowed me to easily do is to select and rotate Lisle’s camera-right eye. I could do it right now, but I’m being archival here.
This is page 19 for "The Mark" issue 2, volume 2, otherwise known as "The Mark In America", published by Dark Horse Comics in January 1994. Written by Mike Barr, drawn by Brad Rader.
