I have been working in my sketchbook since June and I did not realize that I am almost done with it. I only have about 10 pages left and inking is a bit tough now because of the uneven surface created by all the completed pages (makes me hold a pen at an awkward angle). Wow, I can't believe it...I will actually FINISH a whole sketchbook...what does one do with his own finished sketchbook?
I am still grooving in the "Starlinverse", so here is a Warlock close-up with Magus:
And here is something that I found in the "crypt". A photo of me and Mick Gray, probably from 1992-93, attending a local convention right after we finished working on "Bloodlust" for Slave Labor Graphics. Mick, apart from being a swell and fun guy, is also an Eisner award winner for his inking on ABC's "Promethia" and Lee Bermejo's "Joker" graphic novel.
The thing that this photo made me realize is that I have been hanging around comics for a long time, doing an issue here or there but always talking about doing a "real" series. Time is brutal...it flies right by. It was not until 2004 that I started getting serious about working on storytelling and focusing on writing and drawing something longer than 32 pages.
