Episode 004 – I Want to Pursue This
In the first segment I talk about how the early TMNT comics inspired my desire to be a comics creator and to pursue a career as a creative in general. One of the things I mentioned was the cool duoshade paper that they had used to make the comics. Sadly, I don’t think duoshade is still available, but here’s a link to a site that shows some videos of it in actionand a better explanation of what it is than what I give:http://blog.mysterioustransmissions.com/post/79836401463/grafix-duo-shade-is-a-special-paper-used-to-create
TMNT was the book that inspired me, but it could be anything for you (let me know, I’d love to hear about it!). But I really do feel that the early TMNT comics are great, so if you’re curious about checking them out, the book I have is no longer available, but here’s a link to something similar on Amazon*: http://amzn.to/1IPTtvv
