    HaHa…Selfie-stick….naw that’ll never catch on. Hey Donnie, is that zip-a-tone in the first panel? An editorial cartoonist friend from way back used zip-a-tone in a unique way. He placed the dot pattern over each other to create moire patterns to enhance his shading.

    Thanks, Jim! No, not real zip! I haven’t had any of that since the late ‘70s. Don’t think it’s sold anymore, is it? Yes, I used to do that too, creating rosette pattern (like Craftint which I never was able to use). No, my effect is done in Photoshop – “Color halftone” filter with a large dot. Except I did it with black in CMYK (25%, 50%, etc.).

    Yes, he did, Jim! That’s a bad habit he needs to break.

    There’s a Blick near me that sells outdated stuff that includes zip-a-tone. Thanks for the Photoshop halftone
    tips!!

    Lucky you! I’ve never seen a real Blick store. Always had to do it by mail. “Dick Blick ships QUICK!” Yes, if you do it in layers, you can create color and/or “zip” or Craftint (sp?) effects that resemble the real thing.
