For several years I had the pleasure of working on a comic with Baseball Youth magazine. They wanted me to create two characters. A boy named Dexter that loved baseball and his faithful dog Dinger. I quickly got to work on the characters and it didn’t take me long to come up with something that we both liked. The client was very flexible with how I approached the comic art and the story. I wanted the art to have a looser more traditional comic strip feel than vector allows so I drew the art with pencil, scanned it in and colored the art in photoshop.
The comics usually came to me written, but they gave me the flexibility to rework the writing. I would generally keep the basic idea but reworked the punchline and tweaked the story for faster pacing and to be funnier throughout.
