Hi Jim, what do you use when you have to draw white letters over black?

Jim, did you have any cartoons regarding Clinton & Monica?
What Foley did is evil, and your cartoon is good. Just wondering how you treated Clinton during his time with a similiar problem.

12:19 PM Anonymous, I usually paint with Pelikan Graphic White (my preferred brand of whiteout) over an inked field, then nip the ragged edges with ink to square them up.

If a lot of white lettering is required, the above method would be too painstaking and tedious, so I letter in black on white then invert the lettering in Photoshop.

The rushed method is to paint the lettering hurriedly on the black field and do all the cleaning up with my Wacom tablet in Photoshop after I've scanned the drawing. I prefer not to do this because I like my originals to look like finished art whenever possible.
