Do you remember 1997?
Sure, we all do. But to help me remember, here are some try-out pages for Gangland (Vertigo). I unearthed these and many other pieces of forgetable puking eyesores from my vaults.
Gawd, has it really been 10 years? I did these when I was a junior in artschool. I did these for Axel Alonso when he was at Vertigo. He was the first editor I began showing my work to. As you might expect, Axel was extremely generous and supportive with his time and critiques for me. Me, on the other hand..er... hurm.
These are the most respectable of the bunch. Everything else from this period is awful. My storytelling was nonexistent. I thought putting a whole bunch of lines on the page would get me a job.
I can't throw these away. I'll have to find some people to give me a case of beer for each of these old pages.
It's true (atleast for me) that you have to draw a 1000 pages before you get good.
