So, I know that I have made some vector work before. And, I did do a vector/ raster hybrid in the Fred gag cartoon where he's doing stand up. So, I guess it isn't knew. Anyhoo, I've taken to penciling the Fred pages with actual pencil and paper, scanning it into the computer, inking & lettering in vector, and coloring in raster. The ultimate goal of doing this is to bring Fred the line work that I love and doing that with digital tools since it is indeed a webcomic. I see room for improvement in both the way it looks and the speed with which I execute the process. On Wednesday's page, I took more advantage of the vector tools, it won't be what I'm hoping to achieve, but it's a step in the direction that I want to go. Click the below link to see some of the vector inked pages.

As we have been reading, Kevin the Ketchup Packet is a major part Fred's current story.
Now, I am Fred, through and through. But, I do notice some of my negative emotions that I have had in life manifesting in Kevin. I do not connect with Kevin at such a personal level, I do write him to represent how I see other people. Yet, others are often a reflection of ourselves in some ways. Yes, my stupid comic about condiment packets has me delving deep into my psychological life.
I hope you're enjoying it.
And, we've seen the creation of Misty the Maple Syrup Packet and Brandon the Cloud!
Check it out from the start at the above link!
