The planned destination for my on-going CGC Sherman artwork is to build a book, a graphic history of the first few years of the cutter 1968 - 1971.. the years I served on the ship. I have been testing out different software and processes ... even testing my Mac vs my Ipad vs my windows computer .. getting them to play nice and do what they each do best!
Below is my proof of concept .. I'm posting my first page from recent artwork .. using a "best of class" trial software "Comic life" I'm planning to purchase (not sure weather it works better with Windows or Mac) .. Breaking down the artwork into "panels" so it can better tell our story ... I'm also having a good time researching for in-depth details I can add as factoids to side panels and captions. Working my way through a self paced 15 week course "Drawing with Words Writing Pictures" ...
As I get more to share, hope to have the help support and guidance from Sherman crew members ... I only saw and experienced from my point of view a small slice of our time on the Sherman. All suggestions and historical contributions welcomed!
