Tommy Lee Edwards, showing his layout pages. He posted this to twitter to show how he factors in the space for lettering in his compositions from the beginning.
That’s really cool! I love process, and Mr. Edwards is a master.
But . . uh . . don’t we all factor in space for the lettering from the beginning??? :) I thought that was just what making stories using pictures and words was all about. :D
Granted, I sometimes throw my poor letterer under the bus in the name of “who the fuck cares, this looks dope!” But in general, leaving room for the words is Comic-Booking 101. haha
