I have a posse...

This one was a blast! I basically wanted to combine all my influences as a kid and mash them up all together. Idrew each character out separately in my 8.5x11" sketchbook, composed them, xeroxed them and transfered it. I was in a rush to finish it and accidentaly transfered this onto plate bristol instead of bristol vellum... I think there are 38 drawings in all. I also forgot that everything flips with transfers/prints. I did a few more and just flipped this one in photoshop after I scanned it in. I'm playing with different patterns, lines, buildings, etc. in the negative space as we speak, but I'm pretty happy with how the original turned out. yup.

It looks even cooler in real life! I like this piece a lot because I can tell you had fun and it was just a good idea to begin with... combining all your inspirations into one picture. I'm thinking of stealing that idea from you!...

nicely organized, as well, William! All the sketches are very interesting to look at, your individual way of drawing makes them interesting to observe.

Amazing. If I had a magazine I'd hire you to draw for it.
