Here’s another old strip that takes us back to the year 2005. Or 2004? I don’t know exactly. My memory becomes very hazy for everything that happened before breakfast, and I’m not sure if I can trust the dates the files were created. I think I re-scanned and lettered some of the older strips as the whole Chicken Wings project progressed. And of course I colored them even later than that. What I do remember is how difficult it was back then to get started with color. I drew the strips with normal black ink pens, and still do. At first I tried to color them with Copic markers. Although it did look pretty cool, I had a hard time scanning the images without losing half the shades etc. So I decided to color with Photoshop, which I still do. But man, was that a learning curve! Now I’ve got it down and am quite fast. It’s funny how 98% of all the skills I use for work are self taught. Sometimes I wonder why I even went to school and college, haha! But I guess I’m not alone with that feeling …
