Inkling

I'm in the process of reorganizing my studio (read: organizing my studio) in order to minimize clutter (read: shoving everything up in the attic) and free up a little space (read: nursery).

I emptied out a couple drawers of sketchbooks, this morning. It is both exhilarating and embarrassing to look back through these things. Sometimes I feel jealous of my previous self for having ideas that seem fresher and more earnest that my what I'm doodling now. Mostly, I just cringe at the naiveté and often-crappy drawing.

In any case, it is impossible to go through a pile of old sketchbooks and not flip through them, and these were some of the first pages I opened to. I remember thinking about two characters, Inkling and Spot, but not drawing these pages.




That's kinda fun, right? Maybe, before they go to live among the rafters, I should do a little more sketchbook scanning.

Yes, more please. Especially if the denouement involves death by orgy.

I think that's how all my stories have to end from now on.

I'd enjoy seeing more too. What you consider second tier work is going to be gold to us.

It's comments like that which keep me posting. Gold! Thanks, Stephen!

I think this is pretty damned good! Even if it doesn't have a single forbidden sin in it. Except maybe sloth by that little ant-looking dude
