Here’s a quick thing I drew last night after me and my misses we’re joking about the tiny noses Manara draws on women.
It’s been a good week I’m getting back into my own head, trying to sew up the 3rd issue of Multiple warheads. I’ve been thinking a lot about comics.
In my head I’ve been on my high horse. I’ve been thinking about how important it is that when you figure out how to draw you still push it– fuck around and take chances.
The reason I regard a lot of mainstream dudes as bullshit is not because they can’t draw but because the extent of that is power girl complaining about having back problems. (also have you seen my new spanking comic?)
It’s scary and hard to go beyond what works and a lot of the guys who I think have done some of the best work I also think later found a comfortable place and didn’t push it as much. so yeah great power/great responsibility.
Here’s a long lonng panel doing journalism with comics with D-pi on the far left.
I recommend you put it on when you’re drawing and look up when you hear him talk.
“The human hand connects people in ways that maybe a machine can’t, like a camera would not” Smart dude.
Listening to him seems to subtly make the point that memoir is stronger than journalism because it connects the reader in a way that a newspaper article from the same event wouldn’t. anyway discuss.
