It’s been a time of reassessing my creative work, brought on by a change of the company back at the end of September 2009. In some ways it’s meant jettisoning some things that have been gathering dust on my shelves for many years. In others, it’s meant investing in some new tools.
Case in point, I do comic book work sometimes, and I still draw 10″x15″ ink artwork on 11″x17″ pieces of bristol. Scanning that on a standard letter-sized scanner (like my Epson Perfection 4870 Photo), as good a scan as that is, means making two to three scans of each page and then stitching them together in Photoshop. It’s a big pain.
Before I go any further, I’ll say that I’ve received no consideration for my remarks, and have no relationship with these brands other than buying them. My workflow is Mac based.
