Tonight I’ve been translating comics for the fanzine I’m making for the Angoulême comics festival.
Well, I did actually have almost all of the translation work done allready since I translate everything I post here on the blog. Convenient!
So this page (below) was the only one I hadn’t allready written en anglias.
I beleive I have a really stupid way of re-texting…
I scan the original with the handwritten text in swedish. Then I erase the text with the stamp-tool in photoshop. After that I print it and write the english text by hand on the printed copy.
Then finally I scan the printed copy again.
I think people in general might be adding the text in photoshop somehow. Using layers or something… These are strange words and ways for me.
It must be about 7 years ago that I learned how to use the stamp tool in photoshop. Since then it’s the only tool I use… ’cause it’s the only tool I know… I just stopped in my photoshop-developement after the stamp tool. I should sit my self down some day and get down with all the layershajt n stuff… Blahch. Can’t be bothered right now.
I gotzzz workzzz 2 do… ‘n ahm sooo t-h-y-hjurrred… glllrrbbllll…
(she turns off the lights, crawls down under the covers… then a soft whisper, barely hearable, shivers in the darkness. Her voice is so thin now, but still she can’t hold it back anymore. They’ve been reading her blog, leaving comments and sending her e-mails and now she just has to say it; “h-h-hey you guys..?
I think I love you.”
