On the weekend I went to Inkers & Thinkers, a comic symposium and workshop. On Saturday, Australian comic artist Pat Grant led a workshop with a live demonstration of his process. During his workshop he spoke about the qualities of different papers, brushes and inks, encouraging us all to experiment with our tools. I often focus on experimenting with styles but I never really realised how much the right tools make a difference. So I went out and bought some different papers, inks and brushes and gave it a go.
