I was wondering, how do you go about reproducing something is big? Do you reproduce the artwork at a large scale via a printer and then lightbox it or do you redraw it? The attention to detail is amazing.

I make a high res copy of the original, and then lightbox it with pencil onto bristol board. Then using the copy of the original as my guide, I mimic the ink lines with my brush (line for line) trying to emulate everything the original artist has done.

Your control is unbelievable! Few artists could hang with Bolland like this, but you make it look easy. Magnificent work, Gary!

And come on, the drippy lettering looks like it was probably fun.

Nah! I've never encountered lettering that I thought was fun!

Such an awesome spread from a classic 2000AD story.
