Comic exhibition

Went to see this exhibition yesterday. Wasn't very familiar with his work, but I'd seen a TV program about him which particularly interested me as he's a fellow Glaswegian.

Not sure if it was inspiring or demoralising :-) I think inspiring.

Fascinating how small he draws. His inks looked like even a mapping pen would be too thick! So much detail. Particularly interesting since on the TV program he was pencilling on a Cintiq*, and zooming right in.

It showed all sorts of things from scripts with rough doodles and ideas through pencils to final inks and colours - and also some beautiful watercolour - again, tiny.
