techniques and secrects of Arsenic Lullaby

If you are making a comic book page as a "series of storyboards" you are doing it WRONG, and missing every advantage a comic book has.

Anyone who tells you otherwise does not understand the medium...these blogs might help you understand it.

This is not a "class", I am not a "teacher"...
BUT what you have here at your disposal is break downs of how, why, and with what tools I make my infamous work.

Maybe you learn something you can use...or get some insight as to what goes on behind the scenes.
