BLOTTING PAPER The Comic: Production Report No.25

With publication of the second issue imminent this post continues the series of regular reports documenting the production process and creative development of the first and second issues of my artist book/comic Blotting Paper: The Recollected Graphical Impressions Of Doctor Comics, Chapter 1: The Ingurgitator and Chapter 2: A Blot On His Escutcheon. It shows photographs of details of the studio workspace, my own arrangement this time and a change from the one used in the production of the first issue.
