Inkwell Awards

There’s nothing wrong with modern technology. Yet even conveniences at our fingertips, sometimes the old fashioned methods are the best. Take for example with music and art. Particularly with comic book inking.

Inking is one of the key elements that makes the artwork pop out. It helps establish atmosphere through lighting and textures. It’s also important to note that not all inking styles are the same. For example, difference in inking styles range between a very polished finish and a rough, gritty mood. Therefore it is important to recognize the vital role inkers have in crafting the final, finished look of a comic book story.


The Inkwell Awards is a non-profit organization that brings this kind of recognition to comic book inkers. You can click on this link for more  information:

    So very, very true. Inkers are every bit as distinguishing as writers, pencilers, color artists, and in some cases, letterers. And what a rich history we have with inking stylistic diversity. Thank you for helping to shed light on this subject, but keep the flame alive with this wonderful blog.
