There is something about the sketch that appeals to me. It has energy, it is full of possibilities, and when I see it, I can imagine exactly what I want to see without having to go through the pain of the birthing process. So basically I'm a lazy artist by nature.
For this page, I was working on a sketch for a cover to the comic Hack/Slash. I wanted to go with a poster from around the turn of the century, mixed with Winsor McCay, some old Russian poster I found online, and a classic horror movie poster I saw a local theatre.
The Dragon sketch is an idea for a childrens' book. I have all these visuals with a very basic cliche narrative in mind... I need to work on the actual story some day to make it work.
