Some of you may have noticed that today’s strip looks a little different. I’ve decided to give my Cintiq (which is a kind ofΒ  digital drawing tablet for the uninitiated) another whirl for this week. The pens I use to draw Bug Martini have been giving me a lot of trouble lately and I’ve been getting sick of scanning strips, only to realize that I need to pull it back out and re-ink certain areas. Also, it takes longer to draw these suckers on paper, and right now time is more important to me than a possible sale of original art.

I know the lettering in today’s strip looks a little thick. I thought it would be more legible, but I think I’ll try a smaller brush size for tomorrow’s strip. I gotta say, I’m really enjoying working on a tablet. I’ve drawn on this thing before and it never felt right. For some reason, everything clicked tonight and it felt totally natural.

Lemme know what you guys think.
