peace of mind...




okay, so as an artist, i can usually find flaw in everything i do... something that could've been drawn better, composition could be stronger, anatomy is off, you name it.... i try to let it go and work harder on not making the same mistake next time (i make new mistakes) but sometimes i see something that just sticks with me...

case in point - for the screaming tiki con todd and i went to last year, we did a small print to sell at the show based on the idea of a... screaming tiki. after drawing it and getting it printed, i just wasn't happy with it (on practically every level) but let it slide.

with this year's baltimore comic con, we did another print, and i was pretty happy with it... and one for the upcoming mid-ohio show (you'll see it on todd's blog soon) and it made me realize how much i WASN'T happy with the tiki one... SO, for my own peace of mind, i went and re-did the piece. (while todd is quick to point out that "george lucasing" my work is just looking backwards and we've got plenty more to do going forward, sometimes it needs to be done)

speaking of the perhapanauts, been cruising along on new pages, a cover or two... and check out todd's blog in the next few weeks or so for news about some fun new t-shirt designs we're trying out...

anyway, back to the paying work! (captain america and the korvac saga is gonna be one helluva fun book!)
