Odori Park, by Chris Watkins Odori Park - Blog


Last week, I recorded myself drawing Friday’s comic, and thought I’d put the video up online for folks who might enjoy a peek at my cartooning process. Here it is, and please let me know if you’d like to see more of this sort of thing!


  1. Dustin

    Good job! I enjoyed this a lot.

    How long did it take you to make the comic in real time?

  2. Chris

    I surprised myself, Dustin. Aside from the writing, the strip took me a little over an hour and a half. (I think the pressure of being “watched” helped me stay focused more than I tend to be. Thinking about using that to my advantage in the future…)

    Very nice, Chris!

    Personally, I would have preferred an audio commentary from yourself instead of the music, but it’s still interesting to watch.

    Thanks, Aidan!
    Actually, I had been thinking about a commentary, but for some reason the microphone on my headset has stopped working. If I can get it functional again, maybe I’ll do that for the next one.

    Awesome video :D Really nicely done.
    What do you use to draw your comics? Do you use a tablet?
    (I’m sorry, I don’t know a whole lot about drawing things digitally. I prefer my sketch pad :P)

    Very cool! Thanks for showing this. That’s Painter, right?
    Amazing you can get such clean results the first time around. You know how to draw those characters I think! : )
