Just Caitlin Group Shot

The first-ever Just Caitlin image to hit the web! Yay! This picture features the main characters in my comic strip, Just Caitlin. As of right now (Dec. 2011), the strip is undergoing a massive cleanup as I get ready to put it on the web. Just Caitlin was actually submitted to syndicates for approval, but after hearing nothing back, and watching how successful IJWH has become (for what it is, anyhow), I decided I'd rather go my own route. No syndicate means no one telling me what they will or will not publish, and I've found creative control is like the artists' 1st Amendment right that you lose if you let someone else distribute your work for you. From left to right: Sarah, Caitlin, and the twins Juan and Jose.

Original drawing done on 9x12" sheet of bristol, drafted with a blue pencil and inked with a Pentel Pocketbrush Pen. Colored in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
