I would like to see Barrett drawn with a one piece straw hat.

Oh Barrett -- always communicating with fisticuffs. Big ups to Audrey on this one though! Next time I see her I'm totally asking her to talk like a baby pirate for me.

Stowe-I'm curious. What program do you use to draw your strips? We have a little wacom tablet and I'm trying to get the hang of it.

I use Photoshop CS3. Paintbrush tool 7px hard round brush with Shape Dynamics toggled.

I draw everything in the strip (save for the header and the panel boxes) directly in PS on the Wacom.

If you like to see how I work come to the CLAW Open Swim tonight at 7:30 at the Mandolin Cafe.

I'll be there with my Laptop and Wacom and love to do PS demos.

Also... I am bringing a quick pen and paper exercise for everyone tonight.

Stowe- Thanks. I've got my daughters aged 6 and 8 with me so don't know if that would be a problem. I bought the tablet for my 6 year old who's kind of creative but could only give her a little help to get her started. It came with Photoshop Elements 6 and Corel Essentials 4. Are these programs worth contending with or would a software upgrade be beneficial?

I use photoshop 7. cheaper / faster on older machines.

I wouldn't get to caught up in latest and greatest programs. I'd focus on the basics... pencil an paper works well for that.
