William Tongue asked: Dear Yuko, what size do you draw the Johnny Wander originals at? How big are the letters at that size? Thank you for being so awesome and inspiring.
Aw shucks, thank you! Short story comics (Girl with the Skeleton Hand, at left) are done at 9”x12” on smooth bristol. Journal comics (at right) are done at 7”x10” in a sketchbook. I’ve been told that I work unusually small — most cartoonists tend to work much larger than I do. (except for Dustin Harbin, who has the tiniest originals I’ve ever seen — like 4”x4”!)
Honestly, I have no idea how to measure my lettering! I just do whatever fits in or looks right and my text sizes vary pretty drastically from comic to comic. Some people assume that I have a font made from my handwriting (which is very flattering!) but no, I do all my lettering by hand.
