So You Won’t Skip Your Morning Run

Admit it, folks. Chad isn’t the only morning runner to have thought of this tactic for getting out early. Chad may be the only runner to have actually tried it. And Chad’s dog.

Pen and Ink…And Photoshop

nb_dst_inprogress

I draw NoBonking strips using the classic pen and ink on paper. I then colour the strips, finesse the line work, lay out type and add textures using Photoshop. For this strip on daylight savings time, I not only redrew the last panel but also redrew the dying-to-run office worker in the sixth panel so that he was turning his head to notice the setting sun. He was scanned, placed seamlessly into the panel, the surrounding line work was finessed and he was coloured, all digitally. Check out the final strip on NoBonking.com.
