How you make this vintage effect on your profile on the sidebar. Can you make a tutorial? Thanks

There’s a whole heap of different ways to add aged looks to works. I like to keep an eye on drawn.ca for good tutorials or google search with the right keywords.
Firstly I use adobe PS, I work by using a layer underneath the line art to colour that I can then add effects to, like filters and such. So it pays to know how to use blending modes and also something as simple as the opacity slider in the layers palette to help blend effects with multiple layers.
I recently read a tutorial that used the texture of scanned paper to good effect (once again the paper has to be on a separate layer and using the blending modes in the layers palette)
Oh yeah and nothing says old like faded colours and yellowed paper ;)

I love your drawing style - it makes me want to get back into comics

Thanks Bill, some call comics a curse, but it's the only thing that really gets my blood pumping ;)
