Internet, Internet, Burning Bright

What immortal html could frame thy fearful symmetry?

My William Blake story has been posted, cozied up in a warm blanket of intellectual inquiry, over at ImageTexT. I haven't had a chance to read the rest of the journal yet, myself, but I'm looking forward to it.

Fun Fact from the introduction: Bill Everett, creator of Namor the Sub-Mariner, was named after William Blake, and, apparently, a direct descendant. How perfect is that?

whoa, tyger! that's a fierce punch line.

also, I like seeing line drawings in the midst of the painting procedurals. It helps me see what you're doing with color over there. (not that it matters, but the trees are still my favorite part of girl in woods.)

also also I heart the Maid. I think that she looks a little like your Lovely Wife in her stance and cool intelligence. (The shoes, not so much.)

Thanks, Laura. But I have to share the writing credit on that line with Catherine Blake.

I'm glad you like the trees. I love drawing 'em. Pulpatoon: Pilgrimage is as much about drawing trees as it is anything.

Re: the Maid of Might; It's funny, but I do find myself drawing more slender blondes since I met the lovely wife. I suppose if I drew Pilgrimage today, my characters would be walking through a forest of willowy, flaxen-haired beauties. Which probably would have sold a lot better.
