Guess I'm on an 80's kick these days.

The above is for one of the [many!] Martian advertisements that appear in THE SOLAR GRID #5, which I'm having a ton of fun messing around with.

Packed up this week's worth of orders and got a decent amount of drawing done.

Bedside reading these days is GIVE ME LIBERTY by Frank Miller and Dave Gibbons, which I haven't read in... maybe 12 years now?

I was in Rotterdam at the time, for my first ever artist's residency, and one of the guys staying there was a member of the art collective that founded (squatted) the place back in like the 60's/70's. He'd seen some of my drawings, and we'd gotten to talk about comicbooks. He later came up to me with a battered copy of his GIVE ME LIBERTY, telling me it was his favorite comic of all time. I was surprised I'd never even heard of it (given the heavy weight names responsible for its creation). He lent it to me for a few days, and I distinctly remember coming out of the other end of that reading experience a changed man.

Come to think of it... I don't think I've ever seen this book brought up in comix-conversations at all. Oddly underrated in a way.
