The past weeks Von Spleen comic running on my website is something I did a test animation for when I was still considering turning this into an animated short film. I thought it would be interesting for anyone reading the comic to see the animation.

I drew this story and animated this clip almost 2 years ago now, I’ve kind of moved on from it but I still want to put it all out there as it’s still an interesting little story. So if you want more just visit every Mon-Wed-Fri for a new page of the comic.

How to make comics

I’ve been reading a how to draw comics tutorial by Jonathan Lemon who creates Rabbit’s Against Magic. I’m always interested to hear process information from other cartoonists and this was quite helpful in working out my own working method.

I was intrigued as to how he lays out his comics into the different panel sizes/variations in layout and unfortunately he doesn’t go into detail about how he does three panel and other sized strips. I have found a method for myself and created all the possible template I will need for my new project. Even sketched out the first strip the other day and will try inking it as soon as I can print out the rough.
