okay. i'm going to level with you, internet. to my eternal shame, i've never read the john carter books (unless you count some of the comics... which i don't). i have always been in love with the imagery though; so much really great stuff to sink you teeth into.
that said, this might be another week where i think it may have gotten away from me for a number of reasons (most of which would fall under the most boring kinds of cartoonist "shop-talk"; paper, ink, etc...). looking at it now i wonder if it's one of those cases where the sketch was more successful than the finished product. i'm going to put this one aside for now, but at some point in the future i may revisit it for a painting.
btw if you're going to be in the ottawa area next week please stop by the silver snail comic store on wednesday where i'll be signing the new collected edition of my (and jeff parker's) book MYSTERIUS THE UNFATHOMABLE. if you're not familiar with it i can honestly tell you, with no hyperbole whatsoever, it is simply the GREATEST BOOK EVER.
you should totally buy it and stuff...
