The Ultimate Comic Strip

I see this month’s zip­ping by, and as busy as I am, I’m just not at a point where I can post any­thing cur­rent and new yet. So instead of that, here’s some­thing old that might be of interest.

This was done while I attended Art Cen­ter in Pasadena, back in the early ‘90s. Some of the specifics are lost to time now, but I had an illus­tra­tion class at the time, and for our final, we were to do a self-portrait. The para­me­ters of the assign­ment and how you could inter­pret it were wide open.

I wasn’t sure what to do, how to approach it, and was wrack­ing my brains. Until one of my friends in the class made the off­hand com­ment, “Oh, you’ll just do yours as a comic, right?” It was one of those forehead-slapping moments. I was too close to it to see the solu­tion myself, though it was the obvi­ous way to go in the eyes of my friends in the class who knew my inter­est in comics.

And this was the result. Though I think I draw a bit bet­ter now (I did this twenty years ago now?! Yeesh!), I still kind of like this. I think most artists can relate, at some point or another. Any­way, enjoy! I hope to have some new cur­rent work to post next time.
