An Acquired Taste

I thought I'd try a different style of inking on this one, for the Fly Book. I prefer this look and it will allow me to print the images in black and white. What do you think?

  1. yeah, for B&W printed book is this perfect, for color book , however, it lacks some color.....;)
    but.... the many older work of you (with the Blue Bottle fly ) is very good balance : most of you pictures are drawn in muted color- grey of b&w , only the protagonist fly is vividly colored so the attention goes immediately to the flies... that's just my humble opinion . However, if it speeds up the making the book, you know how eagerly I am waiting..... :)

    2. You are right, Ludek, and I agree; having the color focused on the blue bottle flies would be effective, and a good theme for the book (orange and blue). But I was just thinking, if it was all drawn in black and white it would make a fun coloring book. What do you think?

  3. Well, it looks good to me! There's a nice nostalgia to b&w cartoons.

    Hehehe, the donuts crack me up. I can only imagine how expensive the finely aged ones are. Dang. Now I wants me some donuts.

  4. Hi Ted! Nice, I like the inking and the black and white style. Is there a Fly Book coming? I think you have mentioned a book, you were planning, about a year ago... have you published one?

    1. Hey Mag, where you been hiding? Good to see you surface again. Yeah, I'm still working on the books. It's not easy when i'm also doing the animation work as well. It will happen! Again, good to hear from you: the blogs must live!
