Yer lookin' at the heads...

Ink on paper - Circa 1984

This image was used for the back cover of the stapled together zine I put together in 1984, which I talked about in a previous post.

This image is almost a throwaway, it's nothing special when it comes to images of ZONE but it does illustrate one of the best things about ZONE (in my mind anyway) and that's his shape. This drawing plays (nominally I admit) with negative space.

The dynamics of ZONE'S unique head allows for plenty of latitude when it comes to designing interesting panels, especially in close-ups. One of my goals when I designed the character was to create something that I could draw to look the same, over and over again.
