If you’ve ever wondered about “analog” inking techniques and tools, this is the episode for you! I’m joined this week by Michigan cartoonists Joe Foo and Mike Roll for a talk on why and how they use the brush to ink their comics. You might want to watch the video of this week’s episode, as Joe and Mike lead some really terrific demos of how they do what they do so well.

We’re joined once again by Eli Neiburger of the Ann Arbor District Library, who shares some closing thoughts and great book recommendations!

    A new feature we’re going to run on the Comics Are Great! show is free art giveaways!

    You can enter to win the sketches completed during this episode by simply telling people about the show. Here’s how you do it:

    – Post a link to this episode on any social media site (Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Google Plus)
    – Share that link in the comments here
    – I’ll select two random entries to get either Joe’s or Mike’s ink sketch, and mail the sketches to the winners!
    Deadline for this giveaway: November 23!

    (And each social media post counts as an entry, so if you post in multiple places, you’ll be entered multiple times!)
