Isz: . . . early years of bitter struggle



The reason the Isz has a bruise is because of a joke i heard an editor once say when i was trying to break into the biz: "Everybody's got to take some lumps during their early years." 

This was a "Chapter  1" un-published version of the original Worlds of Sam book.

I was drawing Isz's years before i created the Maxx.  I could never find a good home for him though. For some reason the 'snoopy looking dude' on the right, never made it into the Maxx issues.

Another Eleanor Cover

Another Eleanor the Egret cover, two versions. We'll probably use both, and pic one as a variant.

Which one do you like as the main cover?

Blue background...

or White?

Early Awkwardness



Did this in my teens.

Crude watercolors. Deliberately distorted. Yeah, the 'weirdness' phase had clearly started.

Seems i couldn't decide if i wanted to be Egon Schiele, or Berni Wrightson.  Luckily, (or maybe unluckily), a few other influences soon seeped in, until eventually . . .

i found my own voice.

sorta.

Nola Project: Childhood



Yet another Nola panel. The project has been 'self-edited' down to three Graphic Novels, otherwise it might never get finished.

The 'Cap'ians' (along the top and bottom) subliminally appeared in the very first Darker Image Maxx story.

That shows just how looooooong i've been toiling away on this sucker.
