Nice little interview there, Garen - I assume though that you are changing “tack”, rather than “tact”…?

I haven't decided yet.

Edit: Apparently the editor is away in Luxor right now, so it will have to wait until his return. Thanks for pointing it out though. Now, back to Biggles!

Tybalstone - I am latecomer to these Tintinologist.org Forums. I found the link to 'Rainbow Orchid' through here and wish to congratulate you on your excellent work.

I found the series very engrossing and visually stunning. Being an avid Tintin fan, I found 'Rainbow Orchid' really intruguing and yet very original.

Ever since childhood, I have always been very fond of sketching and even created 2-3 page comics but they all got lost in the sands of time. Then life took over and that hobby was lost :)

Keep up the good work! BTW, Have you got any copies left?

You're very kind Rajpal, I'm really pleased you like it... I'm afraid all copies of part one sold out, but it will be available again.

And I hope you can find time for your hobby again soon, even just a little doodling.

While I'm here, perhaps of interest will be this video of me drawing some of the panels.

I'm definetly getting a copy when it is released again. Hopefully part 2 will be ready to buy then also.

Tybaltstone, your stuff is great. There are few cartoon styles I like as much as bande dessinee and you really captured the spirit of the Tintin books from the samples I've seen (without ripping them off). Great job!
Also thanks a lot for the behind the scenes look into your work - it's a fascinating watch and is rarely done.
Have you sold lots of copies of Rainbow Orchid?

Thanks for those nice words, Tintrulz, and I'm glad you found the film an interesting insight. I printed 300 copies of Orchid (but I think I got 350 from the printer), so not that many. I was testing the water, and the completed book, in colour, is the end product I'm going for.

I have already seen it. I wish I could sketch like you!

Just out of interest what sort of ink and pen do you use to ink your comic art? Thanks!

good question - Tintinrulz. Also, what sort of paper?

For paper I use an A3 pad of Goldline 220gsm Bristol Board. I have recently changed pens and now use a dip pen with a Hunt 107 nib (I used to use a Rapidograph, I don't have very precise control with my hand and there was less chance of a splurge). The ink pot I currently have on my table is Speedball Super Black India Ink (Hunt, waterproof), but I also have a bottle of Winsor & Newton black for brushing large areas, but when that runs out I'll probably just use the Speedball.

I'm sure this is too much information! But if it's not, there's more at:
