(Sing to Denim and Leather)
Markers and Pencils, brought us all together! It was you that set the spirit free!

Okay so it doesn’t rhyme that well. Still, the idea is there. With all the full-color printing and web publishing out there I’d think there would be more full-color comics made these days with just color markers and pencils. When Deadline went full color in the early ’90s, it was amazing to watch Jamie Hewlett just go bananas with the color art. He utilized every tool in the box to create art on a board (check out the crop lines on the image second from the top). It’s funny how this fresh approach is sort of out-dated in the current Photoshop era. Anyways. Go to the art store you lazy bastards, buy a new set of markers and a lay-out pad and turn off the computer.

I wanted to just throw up some images of Shaky Kane’s that I really love, two of which are also in the new paper issue of Comics Comics but are in, um, black and white. (Please look for our giant tabloid of a fanzine at a store near you or here.)

Oh, and if any of our new readers from across the pond have any Shaky stories, Deadline stories, or crazy production “blueline biro” stories about Brett Ewins, please leave a comment, cool? Cool.

Shaky Lives!
