New contraption on my drawing table, a sideways letter rack to hold pages in progress.
The brilliant thing about the showdown finale in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is that it’s NOT actually a showdown—It’s Blondie’s plan coming together perfectly. It’s all orchestrated. Sure, the other two guys THINK it’s a showdown, but they’re not in on the plan. Absolute genius. If you haven’t seen this masterpiece in its entirety, do yourself a favor and grab the BluRay ASAP. It’s in my Top 5 favorite films of all time.

THE SMASH HIT DIGITAL COMIC COMES TO PRINT WITH A DOUBLE-SIZED DEBUT ISSUE! When five friends go to…
Dropped some color on the style test. After about 2 weeks of trial and error, I feel like I’m getting close.
There’s a lot to love about this Alex Toth page, and he was a master at many things. One of my favorite things about Toth was the little indicators of depth throughout his work. Take note of the tiles on the roof, the suitcase, and the lines on the rug. Very simple solutions to depth, and masterful execution.
