Yes, these pages are from the same comic as below. I was trying to combine the genre of heroic fantasy with some of my own experiences living in Seattle during the early to mid-nineties. Were I to finish it now it would actually be a historical piece. Just goes to show you; life goes by slow when it is happening, but you look back at it all in a twinkling of an eye.

And here we have page two. You can see I was feeding of guys like Simon Bisley and Bart Sears at the time. I would definitely do some things differently if I did this now, but I think you can tell how totally into this stuff I was, and to some degree still am.

Here we go into the way back machine to continue my re visitation of my old graphic novel proposal. This was my opening page. I forgot how much I was into detailed imagery. There is nothing wrong with that of course, but sometimes simpler can be better. The years of boarding I have done since then have forced me to break drawing down to a more structural and compositional (is that even a word?) nature. It would be interesting to compare these early comic book pages to the ones I did last year for a more recent published story. Perhaps I will do so after I've posted some more of these old ones.
