Sketchy Skunk


I've been inspired lately by Scottie Young, artist on Marvel's Wizard of Oz and other titles. I really enjoy the sketchy look of his artwork and the motion they seem to have. I can understand getting that look with penciling, but he maintains it during the inking stage, too. So, I've sketched out a few poses of Ramone Cologne trying to get that loose feeling while showing more motion in Ramone's poses.

Ramone Cologne Goes Digital on Kindle Fire and iPad



Issues 1 & 2 are now available through Amazon.com on the Kindle Fire and the iPad. In fact, any device with the Kindle reader app has access to Ramone Cologne: A Skunk's Tale, and Skunklock Holmes!

I've read both issues on the Fire and iPad and I think they look really good. The digital format allows you to double tap to zoom in if you want a closer look at word balloons or artwork. Or you can read in full-page format. I've really been surprised by how much I've enjoyed comics on digital readers. I'm a traditionalist when it comes to books, and I have bookcases filled with them. But the digital format for comics and magazines is such a slick look and fun reading experience, I highly recommend it.

If you purchase a copy, and have a few seconds to post a review on Amazon, I would really appreciate it. Enjoy!
