    Hey everyone

    I was reading an article about how Mike Okuda created the panels for the first season he said he used stamps & ink because they didn't have Adobe Illustrator yet . Has anyone tried hand making these like they did in the first season? What kind of stamps & ink was he talking about?

    He probably meant drawing, stamping and inking on paper (in black and white), then having transparencies made. Colors were added by sticking cut up theatrical lighting gels to the back sides, IIRC.
