Retrofit progress

Betsy Swardlick has sent me a script for our Retrofit collaboration, and I am penciling like a crazy person!


Horses are usually on the list of "things people hate to draw" right after cars and bicycles, but this has been surprisingly fun. Look at them go!

I always intend to scan my pencils before inking, and usually forget. I think Eddie Campbell once said that inking is where all the mistakes come out? But, a lot of saying like that are attributed to Eddie Campbell.


This book will be out in October (we're second in the line-up, after James Kochalka. Intimidating!) The Retrofit Kickstarter has been fully-funded, but you can still contribute and get a subscription!

In other news, there's new comics up on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Brand new! Mostly stories I'd intended for the Island Brat book, but then ran out of room. Check it out!


  1. Hi Colleen, these sketches look really good! Can't wait to see the final product!
