Ok. Here I go again. Excuses. Excuses. School's back in session and I've been house hunting, which means I've had no time to draw. In order to keep my loyal fanbase entertained I came upon these old (at least, 5 years) comic pages I did for my good friend and amateur author, Bob. He created a small press character called Mr. Midnite. The following is a four page story I did for Bob's entry in the United Fanzine Organization's annual. Check out my early attempts at Photoshop.

Unbeknownst to my buddy, Rob Shimshack, I borrowed his Fear And Loathing DVD. I loved it. It's funny because when the movie originally came out I didn't really enjoy it that much. I couldn't understand why people were raving about this movie that had no story or plot and that seemed to glorify drug use and bad manners. After watching it again just a couple of days ago I have a new appreciation for the film. I realize that the story is actually an in-depth examination of a drug experience. The whole movie is about the 'trip.' I loved it. I loved the performances and the whole visual experience that Terry Gilliam provides. I even loved Hunter Thompson's commentary track on the DVD. So here's my tribute. As a side note the Photoshop coloring was done following a tutorial provided by Kazu Kibuishi. I have yet to read one of his Flight books.

Ah, the magic of Netflix. I recently watched A Clockwork Orange and did this sketch of Alex. I inked this at ye olde Barnes & Noble using some new pens I purchased at A. C. Moore. I will post about those later. I definitely think I heavy handed it with the more bolder lines. Keep practicing.
