2010 was fantastic for me, and not just because 2009 ended so blah for me. I really enjoyed this year. I got to do some really neat stuff, like travel the world and talk about Akira. And I got to make that Scott Pilgrim game for Fark and NBC Universal. But far and away the best thing to come out of 2010 was drawing again.
I mentioned previously how much drawing used to mean to me, and that I stopped, and that it's been 11 years or so since I actually drew a thing. Thanks to you guys and your generosity during that silly sale thing I did, I got really inspired to try and do some cool stuff for you, and it was like a dam burst wide open. In my ears over and over was echoing a thing Ed Piskor (he did American Splendor and Wizzywig -- which is AMAZING, and you should buy it right the fuck now) told me once.
We were talking about our mutual love of comics and I lamented not having any talent and was generally dragging myself through the mud, and he just said "Dude, it's for the love of doing it. You love doing it, and everything else just goes right."
Never were truer words spoken. So, to keep that love alive, I'm now permanently offering sketches for commission. And you can pay whatever you want (more on that in a sec).
Anyway, I realize it's been a few days since I linked any of my drawings for you, so here's the latest batch:
I did this Eiffel Tower for Andrea for Christmas. It's from a photo from our trip to Paris in 2004:
It's the biggest thing I've drawn since I started drawing again, 11x14, marker on Bristol.
And here's Link from Legend of Zelda for Linda's kid, 6x6, marker on bristol:
