That's great Sithbaker and that sucks Brad!
I spent 7 hours at a table and drew about 6 or 7 drawings. The SW comics were gone quick. I didn't even get one! I also had a request to draw Boba Fett and Yoda and both drawings came out quite good. I was in that zone where time doesn't exist and really into my drawing and I actually am proud of what I ended up with. I sat next to Jeff Lafferty who is a local artist, but really amazing. I felt insignificant next to him, but when he told me he thought my work was cool, I felt better. I mean, he does it for a living and has the luxury of drawing every day and honing his skill. He has done a few Marvel titles and now is focused mainly on freelance illustration (oil paintings) and self-published comic stuff. Check out his stuff at:http://www.jefflafferty.com
I mean I'm struggling to get a drawing done and do okay on it and he's whipping out these ridiculously nice drawings in no time. But, it was fun and cool. I had a sign that said:
- not published
- just a guy who draws pretty well, loves comics and knows the owner well.
People got a laugh from my self-deprication.
It did wonders to motivate me to keep drawing and get things going again!
