Carol Day Original Comic Strip

When I first saw this original Carol Day comic by David Wright, I didn't think much about it. Then I took a closer look and was amazed by the brush techniques used. It's impossible to look at these and not get pulled in by the detail of the art in that first panel. Zoom in and check out the amazing brushwork. These go beyond textbook inking techniques.

It's amazing to think that a comic strip with this much detail would hold up when reduced and printed on newsprint.
Wright is said to have used a #2 Sable for inking.

There is a Carol Day website, with information on Wright and what looks to be the complete run of the comic strip for reading online: Carol Day site
