Back in the olden days us Geezer Designers used the stylize/feather effect, glow effect, dropshadow effect, opacity masks and even that ever frustrating mesh tool to pull of airbrush effects in illustrator. Just utilizing what was there and do it in layers and you can pull off some amazing effects. I'm still in CS3. Didn't know CS4 has gaussian blur. Now CS5 is coming, wonder what its gonna have. Some day you'll probably be able to just tell the computer what you want and BAM PRESTO its done.

What is the advantages in using blurring instead of use the mesh tool? Wouldn't the mess give better results in blending two colors together?

Pretty interesting method. I use similar tactics when using Illustrator CS4. The only difference I see is that you seem to 'cut out' the image using white rather than staying confined within an object. A question with that method - as in your comic, how do you separate your characters from the background... are they painted all together or do you use a clipping mask afterward?
Thanks for sharing this - great work.

I don't suppose you would consider offering this tutorial illustrator file for download?

Oh my, that looks like it's system intensive.

I downloaded one of your earlier examples and I saw how you created it, but I can't imagine what kind of foresight must be needed to go from start to finish *_*
