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.

Welp. John took an awkward photo of me while my eyes were dilated.
My mom bought some cheap (possibly fake) ice wine and we were out on my parents’ back deck in NJ. I guess this is the perspective that John sees me at all the time. He has at least a foot and a half on me.
w-what… what is that face I’m making
