Well, THREE, if you want to be technical. But technique is what I'm talking about, in terms of stylistically. I don't know, maybe you can find the similarities--but they're all sort of compartmentalized in my head.
This first one I did while on my honeymoon...yeah, I'm pretty romantic. Anyway, I had an idea for a CHARLATAN BALL spinoff and wanted to show Joe. I liked this sketch so much so that I redid an entire page of issue #5 to include these guys. Actually, I've pretty much redid all of book 5 because I felt like I was cutting too many corners, especially after seeing issue #1 printed and bleeding on the pages, so to speak. That being said, issue 5 is single-handedly the best work I've done, to date. I can't wait to post some...but want to be somewhat of a tease.
Another doodle for #5, PRE-honeymoon. I dug the design and shape of this guy.
And now to shift gears for something altogether different. This isn't a design for my Dynamite Jones character, per se--but he fits into the world in a strange way, curtesy of my friends Eric and Paul at HOUSE OF SECRETS in Burbank. More to come later!
