Ink - Sketchbook nine - circa 1991

Looking through my sketchbook for some ZONE sketches to post I found this three page story I had forgotten about. I was experimenting with a style that was inspired by Mike Mignola's take on EDDY CURRENT that appeared in issues # 9, 10 and 11 of Ted McKeever's METROPOL.

I was working in the Marvel Bullpen and had done the lettering paste-up on some of the pages. When I later saw Mignola in the office one day I told him how much I liked his work on the book.

I did a minimal amount of clean up on these, the borders were inked with a Sharpie® and had bled through some of the pages.

See my posting of 20 years ago today for another drawing from this time period.

See my posting Somewhere in Jersey for my rant about Sharpie® markers and art.
