H.P Lovecraft and African Locs...Of Mythic Proportions:Extinction.Book One.Part One.Page Five.Antagonist.

Every comic story needs a villain.  The evil that birthed Behemoth threatens the Realm.  I have realized in the years since I first created this image that the tentacles have become a motif in my work initially unintentionally and now purposefully.  Wild primordial tangles streams of potential energy creative...and destructive.

An obsession with forward progression...Of Mythic Proportions:Extinction. Book One. Part One. Page Four. Title Page

I know I've falling behind but I'm still dedicated to get this stuff up and use this technology.  Sequential art is sibling to film and shares many of the same storytelling conceits visually.  I am a fan of Akira Kurosawa and Stanley Kubrick.  I am interested in movement from left to right and a sense of progression in my pages.  Here we see the five young Heroes of our story.  The Title page.

Music List: Steely Dan... anything nostalgic and metaphoric.
