War is a Dirty Business

I’m on the road for work so I had to draw this one in a hotel room and scan it in a Kinkos. Because of that this is the first strip comic I’ve done in years where I inked over pencils done on the same piece of paper. My pencils have always been messy so to get cleaner inks I started doing pencils on a big sheet of graph paper and then light boxing the inks onto vellum. I didn’t realize how dependent I had got on the process! If my pencils were messy before they’re positively FILTHY now. The comic still didn’t turn out to bad but maybe I should draw a couple more this way for practice.
