"I think I have seen that one before... "

After the last post, I'm just regrouping before I start digging through my high school portfolio to excavate some inflammatory pieces that will really get the crowd's blood up.

Curveballs coming soon!

Man, I love this so. Your highlights are so bold and confident. If I had enough bucks I guess I'd be able to buy some kind of Steve Purcell collection. One day... Reminds me a bit of Grimm Fandango.

HIGH SCHOOL PORTFOLIO?! Awesome! My eyeballs are burning!

Awww....! Makes me think of Skull Boy. Of course he'd have a little sister and a dog.

Did you hear Dark Horse has a Skullboy now? Oh well. Everything gets thought of more than once. No one knows he dates back to '82.

Man everything on this blog is wicked! You are a very talented person and you have really inspiring imagery!

First impression: Red
Second impression: Black tree with much red color.
Last but not least impression: Dead tree with typical dead colors (black robe of the dead, white like bones, red is the blood).
But it doesn't look that dead, it's like a dark comic image, especially caused by the dog(or what's left over).
Next time let your optician check your glasses, maybe you will see other colors than red, too. I know what I'm talking about. ;)

I've loved this one since i first saw it.

Highschool portfolio? That will be very interesting.

Hey, Starchie, you know what'd be great? Some background art from HTR...if you're legally allowed to show it that is.

I did not know about DH's Skullboy. Maybe you should have a word with them or something. I can prove he dates from the '80s.

Hmm I don’t know. I don't think you are capable of doing anything to get me as infuriated as I am certain I will one day make you... Also, no, like the spoiled milk in the back of your fridge I did not go away.
