Well, here’s round two of my computer comix! Sloppy as ever, but classic Robb too. Dunno about these colour choices, but i’m colourblind, so don’t linch me yet! I’m digging drawing with a computer, but i need a lot of practice still. I bought the ‘industry standard’ program for making comics on the computer, so once i figure out how to use it, maybe this’ll get easier. Right now I’m kind of missing drawing on paper though, so maybe i should take some time and do that……
Well, here’s my first legitimate attempt at drawing comics on the computer… Yeah, it may be way rougher than drawing with paper, and there’s still lots to get a handle of, but this is proving to be a fun exercise. I like all the added options i get with the computer, like the use of colour! I may as well make good use of this fancy computer and drawing tablet i have, right? I may still be computer stupid (is that a term?) but at least I’m trying to embrace the future…. even if I’m the last one to the game….
I was working on this poster for a friend this week and thought i would share. Click the images to make them big and glorious! There are three colour options; mainly because i like variety, i’m pretty colourblind, and i’m extremely indecisive at times.. Which do you think works the best?
If yer in the Toronto area, you may wanna check out this hilarious show happening at the end of the month. Side splitting humour at a reasonable price? How could you go wrong?!?!
Today i was surfing the web where i randomly found someone had been using an image i had made for my brother’s (now defunct) band in 2005. I don’t mind if someone were to use my work, it would nice to get credit though. So with having said that, i thought i would post the same pic (along with a couple others) so you can see it from the originator, not just internet stock images….
The first image is the one that was randomly used. Illustrated by Robb Mirsky and digitally coloured by Avi Salem and Robb Mirsky. 2005.
The second image was for the full length record that came out. Lettering and swarming flies by Robb Mirsky, underpainting by Deena Jacobs. 2006
Third image was the band logo i created. Robb Mirsky 2006
Sure do love going to shows!!!! Not always the most fun waiting in line…. but i love checking out the oddballs (myself included).
Inspired by going to too many shows, and waiting in too many lines…
This is part of some upcoming comic strips called “Musical Squares”. Stay tuned for more!!!
