On The Road.

Again.

First L.A., now New Orleans, next Mississippi.

I had to leave before I could finish THESEUS. Which was lame of me. I thought about bringing it, but I was already taking work with me, so...

Sorry, Dudes. I'll finish that in a few weeks when I get back home to my stuff and my studio and my life and all.

In the meantime, here are some sketches from the Quarter.


For whatever reason, my favorite thing to do when I travel is to make sloppy, lazy, indulgent line drawings of my surroundings. Usually of a place's more representative architecture. It's tremendously satisfying and relaxing. It lets me feel like I'm on vacation, like I have the time to be sitting in a park or cafe, sipping something cold, and drawing interesting buildings just to kill the time. This is almost never true, but it's nice to feel that way.

I think its great, and it compliments a great and economic style that is eye-pleasing to us while at the same time enables you to make quick comic books. Maybe one day you'll be known as the "indie-John Romita Jr."

Oh my God! I feel like spent about half my summer in Pirate's Alley. These are beautiful renderings of a beautiful city. I do the same thing when I'm in a new place. It feels more satisfying than taking photos, you know?
