Extras

Some of the awesome things I make don't quite belong on their own page or fit on the other standard webcomic pages. Kind of like me in high school... But there's a place for them here! Downloads, tutorials, and papercraft so far. Please check them out.

Tutorials

How I make comic pages is briefly described in a tutorial of my Basic Procedure.

Five basic steps to the tutorial: layout, pencil, ink, color, and effects/lettering

What to know more about how I make SSGrapes? I did an interview about my writing process at All About the Words and talk about my experience making a long-form comic at Growly Beast.

Papercraft

We have paper models of SSG characters for you to download and construct. Check out our Facebook page for additional images of completed models.

The number of stars indicate the level of difficulty. Fewer stars means the model is easier to assemble. The instructions are pretty photo heavy so they are broken down into three steps each.
