RIP 'The Squire' 1782 - 1865

Eccentric English naturalist and explorer Charles (The Squire) Waterton passed away on this day at his home at Walton Hall 150 years ago. He died aged 83 years of age from complications, after falling and fracturing his ribs at his West Yorkshire estate.




I am trying to keep the Photoshop element of the Waterton Comic pages to a minimum. Using the photo editing tool to 'punch up' the colour and black line work on the page. The hand drawn lettering is scaled and respaced in places to make comfortable use of the white space in the speech bubbles.
