Team Toxic Ten Years Ago

Click to enlarge.
Here's a photo I took ten years ago, in 2007, when I was working on the Team Toxic pages for the Christmas issue of Toxic for that year.

I've used various tools for inking over the years. Most of my work in the 1980s and 1990s was inked with Rotring pens. By 2007, (can't recall when exactly) I'd switched to using dip nibs, as shown in this photo.

I've also used uniPin Fine Line fibre tip pens (and still do, for lettering and for more intricate detail) but mostly now I use Zig Cartoonist Mangaka Felexible pens, which are kind of like brush pens.

Rotrings ArGGH! I had the whole set. Pain to look after.
You must remember cow gum? Essential requirements when cutting and pasting artwork.

So happy we moved on from those times.

Yes, and Spray Mount too. Glad we have computers for designing layouts now.
