Page Evolution 2

Here are a few screenshots of how I worked on a page from last year. Ideally I would use this process for every project, but I don't have a large format printer, and I'm not keen on paying money to have the bristol printed out. Anyone wants to donate a 11x17 printer, let me know.

Nice to see the way you work man.

Very cool! When I do traditional art, this is very similar to how I work... I ALSO wish I had a 11x17 printer... but instead, I cut the page into 3 horizontal 8x10's in photoshop, print them out and then do tighter pencils on a light table, matching up the pages as I go or taping them together. And THEN I ink them.. It's a long, but fulfilling process.

I've thought of that too Ben, but I like having solid originals for whatever reason. I did, for a time work at 8x12, so I could squeeze that into a normal printer.

I've got a 13x19 printer, but It's kinda on it's last legs. It was pretty damn cheap, and did a great job for a few years (Epson photostylus 1280 -- cost me $270? I think?). It's impending failure has to do with cat hair, etc. getting stuck into it rather than any engineering defects.
