Here’s some of the current news about Canadian comic book creators and supporters.
The Harvard Crimson published an interview with Renee Nault about her graphic novel The Handmaid’s Tale. When describing her creative process, Renee was quoted as saying: “I always work traditionally — I just really like the feeling of it. Even though digital is a lot faster, working traditionally you make a lot of little mistakes that give the work its personality. So, in terms of tools, I usually just use regular watercolors and ink — I don’t deviate too much from that.” You can read more at TheCrimson.com
