"My favourite artist was always Geoff Senior on Transformers – not just because he was the best to colour but just because I loved his style. It was a great moment for me when he drew the first strip I ever wrote (for Action Force) and then gave me the artwork! As a colourist, I loved working on his pages because they were so clean and crisp. Some artists didn’t finish their line work and you’d be colouring away and suddenly have nowhere to go. Geoff remained my favourite right up until I got to colour Alan Davis on Captain Britain. That was a real career high point"

I like this story. It don't seem like I do, but I work somewhat in the arts and I can relate.

Double exposure good.
Senior made it easy for this guy to color in the lines.
It's always been a strength -- his TF stuff automatically worked in black-and-white as well as for colour, since it has all those solid shadows and cross-hatches.
When you compare it to some modern comics where the colourist has been expected to guess all of the light angles and where focal points should be it's a much more professional way of approaching art. Composition's becoming a relatively lost skill with all of the photo-referencing shortcuts / drawing backgrounds separately that you get these days. Gah, I sound old.
