More from Piarelle about how she makes her art:
“Next step, I’d print out the rough drafts to A4 size and trace them one by one (borders and speech bubbles included) onto Bristol board using a mechanical pencil and a lightbox.
Once I’ve added more detail to the page, I would then go on to inking the page using Indian ink and a ‘maru’ dip pen. Once the page is inked and dry, I would then scan it into my computer, clean it up and begin to screentone it digitally.
After screentoning, I would then add the text and after resizing, etc. the page would be complete. I wanted to make sure that I’d meet the deadline on time so at one point, I decided to screentone and complete one page a day – and thankfully I made it in good time!”
The Story of Lee is in December’s Diamond Catalogue and out Feb 2019.
