Lettering…

Lettering… published on No Comments on Lettering…

I am not by trade a letterer.  I have had to become one in order to get my stories done so approaching lettering from a “has to be done” attitude I think I wasn’t giving it all the attention it needed.  Recently I was asked to letter a friends comic and it being asked to only focus on that part of comic creation gave me a new appreciation for lettering.  So with that in mind I have been trying to break up text more carefully and trying to pay more attention to placement and ballon shapes and tails.  Lettering is one of the unsung arts of the comic industry in that you don’t want people to notice the lettering.  It just needs to flow and not distract from the comic.  I have a better appreciation for those who do it as a trade now and I hope that as I learn better techniques it will make TLZ that much better.  Do you have any lettering advice or stories?  I would love to hear them!

I went back and forth a lot on how to set up this page and I think what I came up with worked out pretty well.  I really like all the characters reactions to what is going on here.  I think it is a bit misleading at first but I kind of wanted you to be confused until the last panel.  Ideally comic artists would love you to spend a hundred hours on each panel and not skip ahead so if you did and saw the last panel I hope the journey to it was just as surprising.

I just wanted to say how thankful I am this year for all that has happened not only with TLZ but in my life.

I have spent another wonderful year with the most amazing girl ever!  She inspires me in so many ways and it is because of her everyday is better than the last.  She gives me the the motivation to keep at my dreams.

I have made a ton of new friends this year in and out of the comic industry all amazingly talented and wonderful people whom with good times were had.  This has been an amazing year for myself and TLZ so thanks to everybody!
