Introducing Travis Walton, Schlock Colorist
Submitted by Howard Tayler on October 17, 2009 - 21:53
Sundayâ€™s strip was colored by Travis Walton, whose work has appeared in books from most all the major comics publishers. I love it. I hope you do, too, because Iâ€™ve engaged him to continue coloring Schlock on an open-ended basis.
My own coloring style grew out of the â€œnecessity is the mother of inventionâ€ school. As I learned new techniques I immediately employed them. Schlock Mercenary coloring under my hand has been a simple upending of my bag of tricks. Travisâ€™ bag of tricks is quite a bit larger than mine, and so rather than dumping it on the table, he reaches into it and carefully pulls out all the RIGHT tricks.
You probably have lots of questions. Weâ€™ll blog more about this in the near future. Meanwhile you should go peruse Travisâ€™ portfolio.
