  2. Border Justice || while working on Waterbound it was tough to encounter all of the stories of hardship and injustice experienced by the migrant and border communities. So many people talk about the “Border War” and sensationalize the situation in media & entertainment. I say let’s use that rhetoric so we can talk about the Border Military and Border War Crimes. Working on some drawings and cartoons about these injustices and the militarization of the border.

    anujink:

    Hi! Thanks for the kind words. In regards to improving ink work, I would say it depends on what type of line you’d like to achieve. Study the artists who’s linework you like and try to emulate them. I grew up obsessed with Dan DeCarlo and Xaime Hernandez’s method of drawing. Then I was getting into the more hatched drawing method of masters like Crumb and Moebius for inspiration. For a long time I felt I was simply copying how they draw. Ultimately it doesn’t matter because in the end it will still be your hand. Hopefully you’ll eventually formulate a way of drawing that will be satisfying.
