Out of context, my favorite panel of the pages I just printed out to ink. I draw some goofy crap sometimes.

sweet!
I just got a decent printer so I can print out my pencils in blueline on bristol, is that what you're doing too?

Sort of. I don't print blueline, I print b&w and then ink over it on transparent vellum. Kind of like lightboxing only without glare in your eyes (it's easier to see what you're doing). I stole the idea from Graham.

Oh word. That's actually how I inked the whole of Secret Voice, and I liked it but I eventually started to feel like I was a little too disconnected from the drawing, like because of the separation from the image I felt like i was more on the side of tracing than inking if you know what I mean.. I like printing in blueline cause I can still be as sloppy as I need with the pencils but it feels like I'm actually inking on the drawing instead of inking through multiple layers.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I always flip back and forth as I go to make sure I'm keeping what I liked about the facial expression or whatever. It's pretty helpful to be able to see what the final printed line is gonna look like, so I figure it's a fair tradeoff.

wow, that image just reminds me of Persepolis's "eye of the tiger" montage.

Vera!

I watched Coraline the the other day. I particularly enjoyed the film's depiction of the mundane, real-world stuff like the scene set in the clothes shop on a grisly day, and thought it looked a little like one of your comics set in motion. Congratulations, it's a stunning achievement!

Will we ever see the art you did for Coraline? It's a big shame so many talented people were overlooked by the Coraline art book that came out.

Yay! I boarded that shopping sequence.

Apparently the animatic is on the blu-ray version of the film, so you can see the whole thing in storyboard form! Story got totally shafted on the regular dvd, though. As per uuuusual.

I'd love to see that.

Did you do any other concept art for the film, or were you just a storyboard artist? Like- are any background characters based on something you drew?

Nope, I just did boards. They have really good people to do character designs, they leave us story shmoes to our feeble attempts at on-model. Though I guess I designed the turtle skeleton? Sort of? Ergh. /:)
