Craft of Comics: Frank Quitely

Posted by on August 9th, 2010 at 12:01 AM

This is the first part in a series of videos by Gavin Lees called “The Craft of Comics.”

In The Comics Journal #300, Frank Quitely (We3, Flex Mentallo, Batman and Robin) spoke at length with Dave Gibbons on new innovations in creating comics digitally. Of particular note was their enthusiasm for Wacom’s Cintiq pen display which they had both used to great effect in their recent work.

In the following video, Quitely demonstrates how he uses his Cintiq to improve his workflow with traditional media and takes us through some of the preliminary steps in creating a cover for the relaunch of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents for DC Comics (see the finished version above).

Lees’ “Craft of Comics” series continues on Wednesday, Aug. 11, with the first of a two-parter featuring Jamie Grant.
