Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Hey, that's cool stuff Ellis! I love that watercolor-y look of the painting and the comic looks fun. How old is this stuff? I've never seen it.
eewww ... AWESOME!
Tom. I'll upload the rest of them. Maybe they're so old you forgot them. I'll load the cover and make the title a link to my own blog where the rest of them are. I'll do it with this post
Loading a link to this on FB got a commitment from me to help a former co-worker with a strip for his Comic Book next year. Flesh Rot. Zombies. I can do zombies.
Great news Ellis! Read all the strips on your blog. You're such a skilled comic artist. How aggressively have you pursued doing comic book work?
Mot at all Tom. Yet there's nothing i'd rather do. Explain that to me? Masochism?
Cool stuff El-Man! Tom, you HAVE to have Ellis send you his Bounty of Zone Z stories. They're awesome!
Thanks Buncake. I'm sure Tom has a copy of The Bounty Of Zone Z or has seen it. I was posting links to my scans of it to this blog some time back
I do still have my copy of "Bounty of Zone Z"! I got it back when it first came out.
Wow, there's nothing you would rather do Ellis?! So why do you think you haven't pursued comic books? I guess video games is where the money and the opportunities are these days, so it makes sense to build your career around something more lucrative. Still, you could pursue it on the side. Masochism? You think so? Or are you not confident of your abilities? What? Your public demands an answer.
I was happiest doing comic book art when I shared studio space with Mike Christian, Scott, Ben Herrera, Mike Miller. I felt focused. I was pretty unhappy at BlueSky and that was my escape in the evenings.
I've never heard you say that before, that you were unhapppy at BlueSky. Really? The entire time? I guess I just assumed that, like a lot of artists, video games may not have been your first choice of careers, still it was a kind of fun and interesting way to earn decent money doing some kind of art. But now I guess I see that you were born to draw, draw, and draw. That is who you are. Yes?
