Flying Solo

CROWN 05 A & B

The figure was drawn for panels 1 and 2 on page 17 of my 2009 comic Flying Solo. For this collage, I trimmed off his hunch. The Jeep was drawn for panel 2 on page 26 of my 2010 comic Martian Debut. These straight red lines, like those in the collage in my previous post, were drawn...

CROWN O4 A & B

The figure was drawn for panels 2 and 3 on page 16 of my 2009 comic Flying Solo. The Jeep was drawn for panel 3 on page 27 and panel 1 on page 29 of my 2010 comic Martian Debut. The two images were collaged together in 2011 and I added white paint in 2015.

CROWN 03 A & B

For my early comics, I designed the covers after I had finished the interior pages. I really liked this image of the idealized man falling during a scene on pages 12 and 13 of Flying Solo. I thought this image, coupled with the title, would make a bold cover. Maybe it would make potential readers...

CROWN 02

The figure in the foreground of this collage was drawn for panel art in my 2009 comic Flying Solo. You can find it in panel 8 on page 12 and panel 1 on page 13. The original inspiration for this pose was a drawing I made of Daredevil several years before. That original drawing became...

CROWN 01 A & B

I drew the hand touching its reflection for panel 2 on page 7 of my 2009 comic Flying Solo. The background was an unsatisfactory sketch, maybe from 2003. I filed it away, thinking I could use it for something at some point. That something was a collage in 2011. I added the white paint and...

SELF-PORTRAIT 05

The faces in this collage came from artwork made for my 2009 comic Flying Solo. You can find them in panels 5, 6 and 7 on page 12. This comic was written as a series of scenes that were joined by various dream-like transitions. When I started putting collages together in 2011, I started discovering what...

SELF-PORTRAIT 04

This collage uses artwork made for my 2009 comic Flying Solo. On top we have panels 4 and 5 from page 5. I ended up not using this picture of me drawing myself in the mirror. These pages in the comic explore how the protagonist imagines his idealized superhero, then an idealized version of himself...

SELF-PORTRAIT 03

I originally made the background of this 2011 collage for panel 5 of my single-page comic In the Clouds that was self-published as part of Momentos. The figure is one of many blind-contour drawings I made for my comic Flying Solo. This one appears in panel 2 on page 6. See anything different? I drew...

SELF-PORTRAIT 02 A & B

I drew both of these images between 2005 and 2009. The figure was drawn for panels 6 and 7 on page 9 of Flying Solo. I made a sequence of blind-contour sketches while looking at myself in the mirror. I think I was trying to suck in my gut and channel Egon Schiele. Advertising work...

REPTILIMAN 01

I first drew a man in a lizard suit in college and called him Nonmemaga. While in graduate school, I revisited the character in a series of sketches. This particular sketch inspired panel 3 from page 13 in my 2009 comic Flying Solo. The background is an image of clouds I made for the panels...
