Over at the Comics Journal, Chris Mautner talks to Glyn Dillon, creator of one of the year’s best books, The Nao of Brown:
The majority of the book was done in watercolor. The Ichi pages are digital, Photoshop. I did use Photoshop to help with the watercolor. I would print out [pages] in the way they used to where they’d print out your black line and your blue line and a colorist might paint that and they’d have an acetate sheet over the top. You can do that at home now. I’d print out the black line at a lower capacity onto watercolor paper, paint that and then scan that back in and put it together with the black line again. So if I fucked up I could just print out a new page.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: You need to search this book out, even if it’s only to see the artwork. Genuinely beautiful stuff.
