Striper is kind of a dumb-surfer-guy tropical fish. So, it would make sense that he would try to "catch some waves." These particular strips featured this week were created from unfinished pencil artwork. Here's original art:
First, I scan the art. In Photoshop, I create a layer on top of the artwork. Then I ink the strip using my Wacom tablet.
Then, I create another layer over the inks and color the strip. Here's the color layer without the inks.
