OMP: NOTES ON BEGINNINGS….
for REALS, this time.
So, the whole time I was sketching out the visuals for OMP: Extinction and mapping out the final larger plot, I was seeing this Artist *wink* and she broke my heart…wanh wanh.
But, I was into my craft at the time. I became an improved draftsman and technician during my time teaching college. I read a lot, finally finding in The Nag Hammadi Library, the beginning of this story.
Still it really starts with the memory of a kiss…
A bit jarring to look at; two engagements, a marriage, a divorce, and a new relationship later, realizing the intensity of that moment (birthday in LA 2006?) and the very different emotions it evokes now from when it was experienced and drawn. I suppose it would be easier to say six years later… but that’s another story that inspired this story.
This is this story of Lord Lizard. A story set in the deep distant well of humanity’s mythic beginnings. This is a story of entropy.
“---a god outgrown becomes immediately a life destroying demon. The form has to be broken and the energy released.”
Joseph Campbell. “Hero with a Thousand Faces.”
So coming every Wednesday starting next Wednesday, will be a page of sequential art. Starting out by reworking the lettering on the preliminary pages of OMP:EXTINCTION.
