So here’s a big change for Hereville book 2: a new collaborator! Cartoonist Tina Kim has joined what must now be called the Hereville team and will be drawing environments (aka backgrounds) on about a third of the pages. (I’ll be drawing the backgrounds on the remaining pages).
Before I began Hereville, I had always worked alone (other than some collaborative comics done in high school). What I’ve found, working with Jake (who provides Hereville’s distinct colors) and now Tina, is the wonderful thrill of being surprised by how great their work is, most of all when they approach a problem or a scene in a way I wouldn’t have thought of myself.
Here’s a sample of Tina’s Hereville work. Thanks, Tina!
