It’s done in pencil and then finished digitally:
I’ll post more details as they become available.
I had some copies of the black & white Cerebus “First Fifth” plates and hand coloured four sets in the same way I had done the original 30 sets back in 1985: assembly-line style. That is, I started with the lightest colour and did only that colour on each of the six plates. Then did the next darkest colour on each. The end result is four sets that look pretty much identical:

I don’t know how I did THIRTY sets all those years ago.
The “Live Event” sale was success!

Thank you everyone who bought a page (or two.. or three..) and thanks for watching.

This is a little movie I quickly put together. It’s from a project I started a looooong time ago.
It starts with a photo of my old boat, the model I made of that boat, the model in action, and the drawings did:
… and then I abandoned ship.
