“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

FOOD POISON_90 minutes
Saturday night, shrimp enchiladas at a Mexican food place, and three hours of body contractions and god-knows-what coming out of my stomach 'til 2AM. Man, I never want to go through that again.
Okay, so here's one of them pain in the ass reference images. I thought I knew 'Judge Dredd' - I mean, I saw the Stallone movie (the shame!), but man, was I ever wrong. So I took 30 some-odd minutes just to look up images of him drawn by different artists. From Bolland, to Bisley, to you name it...and I still coudln't find ref for the boots. Whatever. So the blue pencil version is what it looked like at the end of my 90 minute session from about three weeks ago and the inked version is what I did today in between trying keep food down since the incident. It took about 25 minutes.
Oh, and I didn't leave room for that gun again.
