Comics artists talk shop

For those who are fascinated by the process of drawing comics—and for artists who are always on the prowl for that perfect tool—here are two serious art-nerd discussions.

In the digital corner is Jeph Jacques, who apparently gets the same question a lot: "Should I buy a Wacom tablet?" His answer is a qualified yes, but he recommends that beginners start with the cheapest one, and he discusses at length the ways that drawing on a tablet differs from drawing on paper. This is interesting reading even for non-artists.

Meanwhile, at Hope Larson's site, Graham Johnson asks "What do you use to draw?" and gets a host of different answers, most of them concerning old-school tools like pencils, brushes, and Bristol board, although some folks use digital media for all or part of the process.
