For Two Quarters, Broken Wings [Jan. 2nd, 2013|08:02 pm]

An Unfinished Work
ak! one word says so little, so much more in even all that coherent insufficiency, but there it is.

    ...we were strange birds. a greatly dispaced seagull and an alley crow? i don't know. strange birds nonetheless, as estranged to one another as can be, and there it was and there it lay save for the remaining great sky above all.

...having taken to sky, i leave. the nearest beach is in texas and it's gulf, befouled even further nowadays, and of course still of texas as it was. i would be in california if i could, mayhap...

even one word in the right place can hold a lot of power and meaning.

were you intending to create a comic. like about a relationship? enjoy the beach buddy.

interesting.

ak!

(Link)

well, it's a pretty all-purpose word. :D

yeah, i was intending to create a comic, but not so much about the relationship (at the time) but what it was wrapped around (i thought). both it and the fictive story unraveled together.

ak, indeed.

so there the uninked pencils sat, hopefully to regain ground. only the truth remained. can ya beat that? so i added what words i could to what was left, as true as i could.

i'm going through whatever stuff i have left to depose of. the seeming dregs of the past year or so.

ak, ak ak...

beaches... i always had them around me. never really knew what they meant to me til i was without 'em for 12 years. i seriously need to be back in the sea.

Wow, I love your blue pencil drawings and the measurement lines! It's beautifully unfinished! I feel that there could be at least one more page?

oh sure, several, inked, colored, all that. in fact, the original story idea was a large sci-fi one that only began from my own immediate reality. it could've began totally fictionally even easier. my studio's down for now, alas. i scanned in the penciled pages recently just to have them in digital form, seeing as how it became unlikely at that point they'd ever get inked...

i too liked showing the behind the scenes penciling, i admit. adriano di vicentiis sophiabd had done that on occasion and i really loved it. (hey adriano!)

the only tumblr i deal is on Moebius. i wanted to be able to talk to the guy so i got a tumblr -and still couldn't figure out how to talk to the guy. anyway, that was years ago. i have no clue where my tumblr is or what the PW was... heh. but yeah, at least it's not face**** or myspace or such.

here's a weird thing, an ad i did for a place i was working at last year. it never got used and i was never told why. did it off the clock. no bucks.

yeah, and that was really weird cause the owner said he had largely hired me for such purpose. to not say why he didn't like or use this then, or to clarify what he'd wanted or hoped for instead was just strange. but par for the course. unfortunately, many editors and art directors do likewise. but they have other artists waiting in line...

he coulda had me cheapcheapcheap... -but then i woulda gotten other local work as well. maybe he didn't want that, i dunno.

the ad was meant for Thunder Roads, a biker trade rag with various regional franchised publications nation-wide.
