Post 251


I sent this off to Kirkman in hopes that I can get a pin-up published in Invincible. I think this might be my 4th or 5th try over the years. All my other attempts were back when Invincible was first becoming popular and I'm sure that thousands of e-mails were streaming in, so my pin-ups more than likely got lost in the pile. I really love Invincible, have since it first came out when i was in college. It really changed what I thought about comics and my approach to drawing. After my first meeting and portfolio review (looking at my sketchbook) with Stelfreeze I got into the mode of finding a style of my own, and of course, you look around and see what things play to your strong suits. At the time, when drawing without reference, I had those horrible jagged lines, but I decided I wanted to get some smooth flowing lines like Cory Walker's and at the time I was looking at stuff on Penciljack so guys like Nate of course, John Devilman, and Travel Foreman. Their work really got me thinking about how much fun they seemed to have drawing, and it inspired me to experiment. Something that I haven't stopped doing, but in the past year or so I've gotten out of testing the limits to a more controlled approach.

So, here's hoping this gets published!
