Supertowned myself

Listen, people. I gotta be honest here. If there’s one thing that I’d like to achieve in this eat-sleep-work life of mine, it’s that one day someone will draw something–a picture, a comic, a sketch, anything–in my style. And people will recognize it as such. As they say, imitation is the greatest form of flattery.

I have influences, many influences, but it’d be hard to know who by specifically looking at my work. I look to Bill Amend for color, I look to Bill Watterson for minute details in the background, I look to Gary Larson for the offbeat humor, I admire the craziness that is Robert Crumb, and I can’t deny the simple prowess that is perspective in Charles Schultz’s work. These are artists that have shaped me growing up–and even if I can’t see their guidance in my work, maybe others can. I don’t know. I just draw how I draw.

Maybe Supertown will be the ball that starts rolling. Only time will tell.

You remain turned away
Turning further every day

  2. And of course it had to be green. Looking good (despite the lack of arms and legs).
