Ty decided to try something new with his American Splendor pages. He’s always been a perfectionist with his inking, and is known for his clean, tight style. For this, he aimed for a looser style, and was drawing on paper rather than board–his thinking was that, on board, an artist has the idea that they have to get every line right (there’s only so much erasing you can do without ruining the board and having to do a patch). With paper, he could just crumple it and throw it out; this freed him just to put the lines down and not stress. Ty was pretty pleased with how it came out.
