I've recently opened my online store at cafepress.com. I'm not expecting anyone to buy anything from it, but it was free, so what the heck. And if I get lucky enough that someone actually buys any of the merchandise I'm selling. then I thank you in advance.

I don't usually show my pencil work, since I'm really not much of a tight penciller. I have always inked my own work, and it was what I was trained to do since I started working in comics two decades ago. Most of the time when I show work samples, they're fully inked.

But I'll make an exception this time. It's a bit of a departure for me, but here are shots of a page I made for a short story from UK-based writer Patrick Tkaczynski.

Whenever I do rough pencils, I usually have a good idea of how I'm going to ink it. Of course, there will be some tweaking from pencils to inks, like the expression on the shop owner's face on panel 3, which I changed from being annoyed to being dismayed. And on panel 2, I eliminated most of the shadows on the woman exiting the store, to keep her farther in the background.

Anyway, I hope you've liked this little insight on my work process.
