work in progress...

here's a "new" piece i've been working on.
i started it over a year ago, and i haven't colored it yet...
i'm a huge pearl jam fan.
once i get the sketch to where i feel it's good enough, and before i color it,
i scan it, print it, and throw it into this vintage type-
writer and add little notes, names, dates, etc.
i feel it adds this raw, textural quality you can only achieve with an old typewriter.
then i look through this stack of 1930's newspapers i found in the basement of my college apartment.
they're perfectly weathered and they bring this collage dimension which kinda helps tell the story a little more.
sometimes i get real lucky with finding someone's name or date.
i haven't found "pearl jam" just yet.
maybe that's why i haven't finished it.
