Out of Character

Cover to Cover has gotten me to draw things I wouldn't if left to my own devices. My Moby Dick cover had more shirtless men than I've put in all of my other illustrations combined, and the last two covers (both were due today) feature exotic creatures.

Our first assignment was issue twelve of The Goon. The comic as a whole is both weird and gorgeous; this issue was bizarre and also featured a significant role for Lagarto, a Spanish lizard butler.

I really sort of love him.

Our second cover due today was King Kong. The tragic aspects of the story have always appealed to me. I was also thinking about the hugeness of New York City, even compared to the eighth wonder of the world.
