Balloon Slanting by Clem Robins

Being that Clem can't login to this forum for some unknown reason, he's asked me to post the following for him.

when the lettering in a balloon is italic, try skewing your balloon a bit to reflect the slant of the lettering. it doesn't take much.

here's an example. here the balloon is unadjusted:

i think it looks neat.

On a personal note, I wish someone with Digital Webbing would contact Clem and help him login. He is a valued member of this forum and is duly missed.
