Meet Rusty Gilligan

Meet Rusty Gilligan, comic book artist/inker/author since 1978… and loyal Strathmore Bristol user.

“I always use Strathmore 300 Series Bristol Smooth,” says Rusty.  “It's perfect for the commercial inks and paints that I use while maintaining a white gloss for professional scanning.”

“When I get artwork to ink for publication, I bring the image in Photoshop, clean it up, and convert the image to blue-line (turning the art blue),” explains Rusty. “I then trim a 9” x 12" 300 Series Strathmore Bristol Smooth sheet and print it out. I ink/paint directly on the sheet, scan it, and send it off the publisher.”  Thanks for being a loyal Strathmore customer, Rusty!
