On the Drawing Board…

Filed under: Announcements,Photos,Spy Guy — M Kitchen @ 11:49 am

Here is the first panel for the 2 page SPACE 2010 Anthology that I am working on right now.  I’ve always had a problem with going in with the blacks for contrast, but I’m very pleased with the way this one is coming along.  Thought I’d share.

Now back to the drawing board.

Neil Gaiman quote:

“So far I’ve not yet gotten to the point where I’ve ever written anything, in the last twenty something years, for money. And that’s only because the very very first book I did, published in October 1984, a biography of Duran Duran, was done entirely for money. And I was very young and very hungry and it bought me an electric typewriter… umm, which sort of dates it. And at the end of it, it came out, and I looked at this book, and I thought; you know, I spent five months of my life working on this book, and I don’t want to read it. I’ve actually written a book I wouldn’t have wanted to read. And I thought – and THEN immediately after it came out and was an ENORMOUS SUCCESS, the publisher went bankrupt, like, within two weeks, and that was that. So, I’ve only ever had my initial advance, and I thought; right, that was an interesting lesson; you do stuff just for the money, you don’t even necessarily get the money, and then you don’t have anything, cause you don’t have a book to be proud of. And it was a really good lesson. So, from that point on I’ve always done stuff that I enjoyed and always done stuff that I thought would be fun, and always done stuff that I wanted to read.” *

Grant Morrison quote:

“I’ve been reading about the scientific theory of emergence, which is basically that if you get a bunch of simple things together, and you get enough of them, they start to form something complex. Like, a single sponge cell is completely stupid, but a bunch of sponge cells can actually do stuff, move around, eat, keep themselves going. So, I was applying this theory to writing. Because, we’ve all heard the story about how writers talk about they get to a point in the story when it gets so involved and the story and the characters seem to take over. And as a writer I can say that actually happens, there’s a moment when the story takes over and you’re kind of forced into making choices that you may’ve not made otherwise. So I like the idea that there’s maybe actually something going on here that had to do with emergence, that you can make the story complex enough that the story almost begins to compute for itself, and start to think for itself.” *

Rich Johnston quote:

“He’s a clever sod that Mark Millar. No, seriously, he has systematically built his way up from writing licensed children’s comics in a backwater, each time building up the next step. It’s like that puzzle where you place one grain of rice on the first square of a chessboard, two grains on the second, four grains on the third and by the end of the board you have more grains of rice than exist in the world.” *
