Abstract Comics Drawing Flash

Damn! Why can’t I draw like this intentionally?

This is a layered work drawing from a project I am working on with Scott Lobdell, chopped into an abstract comic. Artists would really rather look at other artists sketch books, working drawings and roughs. The excitement of the not complete appeals to artists, probably because it shows how some one else makes all their thoughts. Every artist want’s to stop before they finish to keep the bounce in their process alive into the finished work. It’s always funny to see some poor kid trash an artist who has gotten looser and rougher as they get old. Artists know it take more balls and skill to do loose work then finished, a polished manicured well cross hatched surface is just the matter of sitting on your butt for endless hours. Brush strokes that are alive that takes a hundred years of sitting on your butt drawing.

So I wanted to cut my working drawing into an abstraction and see what it feels like. Because in thinking about patterns for abstraction I’m feeling something shifting between my “abstract” comics and my story comics.
