Der-shing Helmer is an author of web comic called The Meek. We interviewed him and published our conversation in english and slovenian versions.

Can you first introduce yourself to our readers and tell us more about you starting as comic writer.
My name is Der-shing Helmer, and I do two things: I am becoming a high-school biology teacher, and on my free time I draw comics. I’ve always liked drawing, and I like telling stories, so a few years ago I finally figured out I could do both at the same time if I learned how to draw comics. Now I am finally at the point where I am posting the finished product online and I am glad that people are enjoying it.

Why did you choose web instead of standard (dead tree) publication.
I chose to do webcomics because I like interacting with my readers. I find that part of the comic process the most rewarding, both in terms of receiving criticism and receiving general feedback. It is also a lot easier for me to upload a page to the site than it is to submit it for printing (and is also a way for me to get instant gratification seeing it posted publicly within minutes of my having finished it).

Der-shing Helmer: The Meek

What tools do you use when creating comics?
My first draft of the comic was done entirely on computer paper and in mechanical pencil/marker, but this final version is done 100% in Photoshop CS2. I use my Wacom Intuos tablet to sketch out the page, refine the lines and ink them, add type, color, and format for the web. Since I have a template ready to use, the process has become a bit more streamlined from when I first started (although each page continues to take around 8 hours to complete).
