For me, the best part about this comic is the blood spray in panel one. That’s because, as I masked the page with frisket and splattered the page with a toothbrush dipped in ink, my son was watching intently. When I peeled the frisket back to reveal the effect, he said, “that’s cool.” It may not seem like much, but when you’re able to impress your world-weary teenage son, it feels like the best thing ever.
BTW, frisket is the real-world equivalent of the Lasso Tool. And use an old toothbrush, not the one in current rotation. Unless you’re into Heian era tooth fashion.
