Paper Alien: How I Create my Drawings

Clint Kessler

Everytime I doodle on my homework or on any piece of paper, I always have at least one doodle I love. I used to cut the drawing I liked out and paste it onto a higher quality piece of paper, but now I have a different method. I got this really cool lightboard (a board that lights up making it easy to trace things) which I trace the original doodle onto a piece of cardstock. Then I ink over the tracing and erase the pencil lines, the eraser turns black lines into a light grey so I have to go over them again. After that I go over the borders with a thicker pen and scan them in to edit on the computer.
