Here we are in the middle of the Canadian summer. It has been really nice recently, and I have spent more time outside running and going to the beach with the kids than drawing. A few pieces here and there, but so far none of my really big projects have come together. I have a request from my daughter for an awesome Poison Ivy, so I may break out the markers and some large bristol if I get some time. This spring/summer has been great for comic book geeks, with the latest Superman, Iron Man, and Wolverine movies. All were very good. Can't wait for Thor to come out in the fall.
My weapon of choice recently has definitely been my Copic markers. For a long time, I was working almost exclusively digitally, but then went back to more conventional methods. I would say I produce crisper artwork via Photoshop, but I just enjoy working with markers and paper so much. On one hand they are fast and easy, but on the other hand you have to learn to use them well (which I still am). And if you ever do decide to get some Copics, definitely get the ink refills as well. So economical!
