SPQR Blues: Blues 3 parts LXII & LXIII


Last breath
CSI Herculaneum

When I was a teenager and desperately wanted to become a comic book artist, I was in despair that the fastest I could draw was a page day. You see, comic books come out once a month, so it must be that they are drawn, assembled, and printed, all in thirty days or less. I bemoaned my inability to draw more than a page a day, to my friends, to anyone who would listen. They generally said, Yeah, that's too bad.

I mention this because, after years of hand trouble, and arm trouble, and damaged nerve trouble, I have at long last for the first time in quite some time, drawn the equivalent of an entire page in (the equivalent of) a day. It might not be brilliant work, but I did it. This may not seem like such a big deal, but it's not bad for a mere 2100 or so drawings into the count.

Only now I know you don't actually have to draw a page a day to call yourself a comic book artist.
