Comics are the best way I have of telling a story though the screen of a laptop. They were that way on paper too. But with the death of paper as a mass media form this is the best way for them to be seen at all.
My laptop, a cheap ass small scanner, an ok camera, and the awesome Comic Life software from http://plasq.com/ are my tech tools. Those images not obviously a photo were made the old fashioned way. By hand, at my desk. Using ink, paint and whatever else I think will work.
I’m not laboring under any illusions of fame and fortune. I don’t think you will be seeing any sidebar or banner ads on this blog. The comics are here to tell stories to my friends and to my self.
