5/5 - (1 vote)

Bratstreet is an online comic strip written and illustrated by Edward Justinen.

Those nice reading that make you smile and think !

Welcome Edward !

– Where do you come from ??
Sunshine Coast BC
– How old are you ??
– Influences ??
So many. Foxtrot, Garfield, Bloom County, Calvin and Hobbes to name the most prominent. Worked in Childcare for 20 years, and that’s the main inspiration for the strip.
– Art school or not ??
– Favorite digital art software ??
I only edit on my phone and use Snapseed and Sketch
– Your working method ??
Pencil and ink. I use Pigma Micron and Uniball Vision Elite pens
– What your webcomic is about, in a symbolic way, the hidden sense ??
It’s about the misconceptions we have about children and their way of looking at the world and the way we look at them.

– Tell us more about your main character, the hero !?
Charli would be the ‘main’ Character, although all four children factor in pretty equally. Charli represents the frustrations, violence, anger, sadness and general negativity in us all, but through a lens of virtual perseverance. She doesn’t KNOW she’s any of these things, and the rest of the children serve as a foil to show consequences of acting out on those impulses.

– How do you see your future ??
I’d like to eventually self-publish. My goal is to share my work as widely as possible. Perhaps even bring in a side income one day.
– Your next goal ?? To get to my 100th strip.

– Advices for beginners ??
Persevere. Even if things don’t seem to be going the way you want, keep at it. Draw a LOT.
– Your technical secret trick ??
I wish I had one. Using a circle template for the kids’ heads is about my only ‘secret’ although I only use it to pencil. I freehand ink after that. I find the imperfections of freehand inking gives them more personality.
– Where to find you Edward ??
