QUARTER MOON #4, due out next month, is our “underwater” issue. This one’s got stories ranging from melancholy to existential, hilarious to absurd, from the likes of Andrea Tsurumi, Rob Woods, Dani…
Locust Moon has a sneak preview of my comic that will be appearing in their next Quarter Moon anthology. I’m proud and fond of the story, and I’m excited for it to see the light of day!
I like where this top panel is headed. #comics #fantasy #process

A blank page is a funny thing. You have all these beautiful, wonderful images perfectly formed in your head, and that page is just shouting out to be their caretaker. And you’re so confident in your abilities to get them out on the first attempt, that you think you can do no wrong.
Of course, once you draw them, they don’t look so hot. The proportions are off, the forms a mess, the expressions all wrong. Is this really how it looked, in your mind’s eye? Can’t be, impossible. You can still see the ideal image, but it’s hazier now, almost hard to recognize. It’s as if the attempt to draw it somehow ruined it, besmirched it, like an eraser to your imagination. All you can think of is your poor rendering of the idea.
This can be dispiriting, but it shouldn’t be. All this is revealing is what you don’t know. Maybe you’re out of practice with something. Maybe you need to draw the object/figure/thing a few more times to really get a feel for it. And maybe you really do need a reference, the imagined image not quite as accurate as you thought it was.
What you don’t know you can learn. You can find, you can discover. You think it’s complicated, but it’s really quite simple.
You think the blank page is mocking you, but it’s actually trying to help you. ‘Let me help you bring that image to life. It may take a few tries, it may not be as perfect as in your imagination, but it’ll be real. It’ll exist. Trust me, we can do this.’
A blank page is a funny thing.

Really interesting to see Urasawa’s adaptation of Tezuka’s stylized designs, especially the very cartoony humans.
