Sam and Abbey: Judge Parker Process

This is a process shot of me working on the Judge Parker strips for the of week 7-2. We've been back at Spencer farm for a day or two now which equals a months worth of strips so far. One thing fans sometimes fail to grasp is how strip time is much longer than real time, and that also depends on the amount of characters and complexity of the story.

We have but three panels to play with every day and I think long time readers are used to this, even though JP has always moved at a slower pace compared to the action strips like Johnny Hazard. I also think modern readers are used to TV and movies, especially current post 90's movies where storytelling is very hyper compared to the strips.

One of the things I like the most about the strip is working with the traditional tools, pen nibs and the brush. I do use Pitt Pens as well, but nothing beats the snap of a good pen nib!
