HILT – Process Demo

HILT-StyleTest01-NickSmith

This week I’m taking a break from my day job at Defiant Development to blitz my comic in an effort to get ahead on it. It’s been a productive few days and is going to be capped by my attendance at ZICS (Zines & Indie Comic Symposium) this weekend. I’ll have a table there selling my wares, and will be doing a talk about my motivation and process I use in my Hilt at 2pm on Sunday as part of the Skillz 2 Pay the Billz workshop. If you’re in the Brisbane area come check it out.

In the meantime over at the HILT blog I’ve posted a style test I did a while back, an example of which is at the top. Click on the link or the image to head on over and check it out.
