Reynold Brown- NOT

Now I know different.
The Not Of This Earth is a big favorite.
Albert Kallis
Tom's got me thinking. I should be all about photoshop compositing. Never think of a panel until I start to scale the art . Never touch a pencil. Do the art in ballpoint an image at a time..
These were done in the back of the Van , down times waiting to get to the airport to pick up "dirties."

At the bottom of the page it says,"Some of the artwork above was worked on by Reynold Brown or may have been his work supervised by Albert Kallis. If anyone knows more information please comment below. In 1958, Kallis also co-founded the IHOP (International House of Pancakes) restaurant chain."

I didn't read that part. So Reynold Brown's hand still very present.

Cool ballpoint images Ellis. I hope you enjoy the Photoshop-compositing way of working. I find it so useful for playing with both art and story possibilities.

I'll do some panel parts today . To feed to this Tumblr I've set aside for continuing my Skewered Fairy Tales

I could also practice the approach by complete touch up of the originals. Drop in decent type, balloons, correct ugly crops etc. Remake and republish.

I'll finish reading the anthology of Joe Kubert's The Viking Prince today. The I start Smiley's People by John LeCarre. Actually already started it. Can tell it will be great.

The Viking Prince is interesting because it starts and stops with character details and characters, adding new ones, dropping old ones. Including the romantic interest that he started with. It ends up with being thrust into Sergeant Rock's world.

It's a bit jarring but they're all great, super compressed, high stakes , comic book adventures.

Jarring as if New Darren and Old Darren were traded back and forth in a marathon of Bewitched.

The art is Kubert channeling Hal Foster for all he's worth. Meaning, great art. Another thing I noticed and liked. Made me think of Tom's work as well. Take an entire figure and give him a solid color overlay, based purely on being complementary or based on unity. Solid blue, red, gray. Back in the days of amberlith. Keep those color choices simple.

Tony Gwynn. Padre slugger. Dead at 54. I know about it because he was apparently from Oklahoma. Heard it just now.
