Two Questions And A Picture: Jimmy Gownley

For the first part of a new series we’re launching, we asked bestselling author Jimmy Gownley (The Dumbest Idea Ever) to answer two questions and and to share an image! Stay tuned for more installments featuring more talented Graphix authors and illustrators!

Question 1: Which comes first, the story or the pictures? Or are they simultaneous?

JG: I always try to work with the words and pictures simultaneously. A comic is much more than just illustrated text. The pictures are every bit as important at the words, so I try to make them work together from the very beginning.

Question 2: Do you have a specific or favorite pen, pencil, or paintbrush that you always use to work?

JG: The tools I like to work with are the Hunt 102 crow quill pen, the old fashioned kind that you dip in India ink; a Winsor & Newton #2 sable watercolor brush; and the Zebra fine brush pen. I use a bunch of different pencils because I don’t have one particular favorite.

Jimmy’s picture is a piece of original artwork, that we’re giving away! Click here to enter for a chance to win this signed print!
