A Day of Good Fortune

I can tell that this is going to be a good year for me, career-wise in particular. I am bursting with ideas for comics and graphic novels that I am in the process of compiling my pitches to deliver to my editors at DC Comics and Image Comics. I am seeing the hard work my peers have done in the past years paying off for them (that's YOU, Jeff Parker) and it is nothing short of inspiring for me.

And speaking of inspiring, I had lunch at Subway today (yes, one of the 5 gram/low fat sandwiches), and the guy in front of me in line was having every possible ingredient put on his sub, and I mean EVERY single vegetable that he could get without paying extra. That thing was towering so high with jalapenos that the sandwich artist couldn't put the top part of the roll back on. She had to wrap it separately. I was in awe that this guy really ordered this thing. Looking at that skillfully crafted mountain of mayo and olives brought a huge smile to my face. Better him eat that thing than me. Then, as if my day wasn't already good enough, I overheard this gem from a group of office workers behind me:

"My boss gave me, like, this long list of specific random stuff to do today."

I hope looking up the words 'specific' and 'random' in the dictionary were at the top of the list.


  1. Hey, these are really beautiful, David!
    I especially like the way of coloring you used on the Girl'S Head. Reminds me a bit of Moebius!

  2. Thanks, Sarah. The look of the French comic style is what I was thinking at the time I drew her!

  3. Very cool, I love more raw sketchbook stuff
