“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

A week and a day and no new posts? Bad, bad, bad.
As promised, here are a few preview pages of the book I'm working on. It's a 150+ page graphic novel of which these are pages 1-6, then pages 10&11. The initial idea was to set the whole thing in a snow storm so that I wouldn't have to draw any of those annoying backgrounds. Unfortunately, it didn't end up that way - stupid establishing shots.
I've finished 60 some-odd pages so far (and it all depends on your definition of 'finished') but I've had to slow down considerably - work-work is in full swing now, truncating the time I've had in the past to do either those nifty 90 minute sketches or the work I'm doing on the GN. Hopefully that'll change soon. Dig it.
