Cover sketches - pencil, Berol marker and colored pencils - Sketchbook nine - 1989

These sketches were done while I was trying to figure out what the cover to the first book-length issue of ZONE was gong to look like.

Pen and ink – 10 1/2" x 15" – 1984

This is one of my all time favorite single-page ZONE stories. It's a tribute to George Herriman and his wonderful strip Krazy Kat, with a nod to Bob Dylan.

pencil, micron - circa late 90's, early aughts

This in another case of... The Curse of the 2H Pencil! I tried to adjust the levels but to no avail.

I'm posting this not because I think it's a great sketch or that I've run out of other material (I've got plenty more) but it shows how things sometimes start and then just...

I found this the other day while I was looking for something else and the simplicity of the line just struck me.

There's faint traces of a word balloon to the right of ZONE'S head, all that I can make out from the original drawing is, TRIPPING IN NORTH... and then just the letters A and R. Your guess is as good as mine.
