My dad was a professional cartoonist for over 30 years(retired), and for most of his career he inked a comic strip called Marvin, before working for Disney for a brief period of time. Marvin ran/runs mostly in midwestern newspapers, and this is an original strip he inked from 1984, done with a brush and Higgins india ink. Alot of my fascination with the ink line stems from watching him carefully/tediously trace the rough sketch over a light table with a brush adding various line weights and really bringing the strip to life. The vast majority of 'inking' is done digitally now..
