My Mythological Project

posted in Home Jabber on April 06, 2005

Just returned from Sin City, and despite the fact that I hate Bruce Willis, I've come to really dislike watching gore in films, and I didn't particularly like the comic in the first place, I really enjoyed the film. Sure it can be fucking gross (nut-ripping, anyone?). Sure it's stilted and stiffly acted at times. But overall, I think Rodriguez did an amazing job translating a comic to film. Worlds better than say, Ang Lee did with the Hulk. (I wanted so badly to like that film, and it did have its moments, but overall: UGH.)

This weekend I hope to finish sheetrocking the attic, and therefore get my workspace in functional order. I am hellbent on getting caught up on webwork and then taking my long-overdue hiatus from the computer so I can start crafting my now nearly mythological Big Book.

This is one of my favorite pieces so far. I like how you separated the colors... like on the union pacific boxcar and the grafitti. Super good. And the grass... Don't get me started. I can't wait for you to start laying out your ideas for your big mythological book. Maybe it should be just that. Like a modern myth story created by you. Set in portland. Monsters and boxcars... yeah...

Thanks.. still don't know about that sky color. My latest idea for the book is to draw inspiration from when I was a foolish (& often hilarious) 17-19 year old. Then pull in stories from other sources..

I know you want me to draw a story with monsters, I'm just not able to draw em more than once. They'd have to change on every page. (hmm...)

Ha ha ha. I looked at this drawing for about 3 minutes straight and clicked in here to write up some comments--but Aaron stole all of them out from under me!

I say, if Herriman can change the backgrounds every panel, you can change your monster every panel. BIG BOOK! BIIIIIIG BOOOOOOOK!!!
