The Battle of Wakefield Exhibition at Wakefield Museum opened today and even with my critical eye, I must admit, the comic strip looks good. The pencil line and digital colouring has held up to being enlarged and the speech bubbles are crisp and easy to read. I like what the design team have done on the outside too, using the colouring flats as silhouettes to illustrate the text based pieces. This is something I hadn’t thought of but boy, it works well.
As always, it’s difficult to get a good photo, museum lighting is 40Watts of archival darkness at the best of times. Will try to remedy that in the next few weeks and get some nice photos made.
Today is also a SketchCrawl day. A day for people around the Globe to take time out a with pen and paper and crawl around their neighbourhood together. A modest few of us got together today to do Wakefield and I had a great time. The dread at drawing in public again was soon conquered by the simple act of doing it. I also came to the realisation that I enjoy drawing people more than I do buildings, from the comfort of a Cafe Table.
