Dave Sim Teaches Tracing, Pencil Sharpening

Strangely halting narration from Sim as he discusses his process on his post-Cerebus book Glamourpuss. The trials and tribulations of tracing from fashion mags, how to use an electric pencil sharpener, and the wisdom of Al Williamson. Notice the slightly eerie child-sized Cerebus figure standing alone in a room at the 2:10 mark.

The "child-size" figure of Cerebus is actually a Muppet made by the same guys that made the muppets with Jim Henson. Dave and the guy bartered for a nice drawing of Cerebus (I can't remember, pre-coffee, what the drawing consisted of) and the Muppet of Cerebus as "Most Holy". Here is a picture of me and the muppet if you want to take a closer look at it.
