Fewer Comics but Better Comics

I think we should all conveniently forget about my idea of posting a new comic every day. This morning I made a comic about traveling back in time on Saint Patrick’s day, visiting my younger self, and replacing Young Ben’s corned beef and cabbage with a guinness. It was okay.

Instead of a comic here’s a process picture from the early stages of the Zita the Spacegirl cover illustration.

I hope to be able to post the final cover up here soon, because I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.

RECOMMENDED FILM: Man on a Wire: a documentary story about Philippe Petit, the man who walked a tightrope between New York's twin towers in 1974. Absolutely, terrifyingly amazing.

Ben, your work is incredible.

Thanks for the comment. It's very reassuring to know I'm not the only artist who feels split.

Looks good so far!

Angelica's panel with just the chicken, staring? Is haunting.
