sometimes it's work

this page was, for some reason, pure torture. took ages and i can't figure it out. luckily, it's done, and now it's a breeze again.

this week is a sprint- nothing but divas. going smoother than issue 1, though, which makes sense.

sunday shade

in the end, there wasn't much time to draw- barely managed to do a few photos properly. the rest of the time it was walk walk walk. ideally, it'd be great to take six months and just walk around paris and sketch- that'd be a good start.

you know how it goes- it's 3am, it's a small head, you don't feel like you need tight pencils... so it goes.

these need no introduction- finally managed to get my hands on a complete 1954 set! to lug these 20 pounds overseas the postage alone was a clean hundred dollars- worth every penny. full of incredible stuff- briggs, fawcett, parker, just the pictures alone are priceless.
