Wassup y'all! Happy New Year. I had a great week off where I had a chance to reflect, relax, sleep, eat and draw. I did all of those a great deal, which in mind is the perfect vacation. I headed back home to Boston (my hometown) and got to look through my childhood comic book collection, which I haven't really done in quite a while. It's always a kick to look through some of the stuff that shaped my childhood and provided me with the inspiration to do what I do for a living. I always read comic books as a kid, but my real love and passion for the medium didn't really develop till 91' or 92', around the time of the formation of Image Comics. That whole movement really affected me. The art was so frenetic and colorful and just so . . .new to me, and for the first time in my life it made me say "wow, this is what I want do". That said, this next set of images is sort of my homage to all those great books from the 90's that I dug.
This first one is based on Sam Kieth's The Maxx.
