So folks who've been watching me for a while have probably noticed that for the last 3 years or so, I've pretty much only been posting recreation work rather than my own original comics or illustrations. Every so often I feel like I should be doing more 'original' work in my own style, like a comic or even more book illustrations. However, I've been kind of depressed and/or anxious for a lot of the last year or so - mostly for fairly obvious reasons (insert various pictures of 2020/21 here), and an assortment of pretty basic personal anxieties. Doing original work takes a heck of a lot of energy and enthusiasm that I just haven't had for a while, doing compositions, layouts, etc. really takes a lot out of me. Yet, I still feel soothed by the act of inking - it's a great anxiety relief - so I keep myself busy doing recreations. Luckily enough I've had a steady client wait list for 3 years running, so I've always got something to work on. It's also a good way to have steady funds

ETA:  My commission list is now closed - I'm going to be focusing on new comics and personal recreation pieces for a while. Now that I've completed both of my last two big illustration assignments, I've decided I'm going to spend the next few months doing cover recreations only...and then pick up some more book illustration assignments in late Fall. If you are interested in a classic cover recreation (silver/bronze age - not really a fan of doing recreations where there's a lot of computer color & typesetting), here is what I'm asking: 11x17" cover recreation ($100 each) -  all logos, trade dress/etc hand-drawn on Strathmore 300 series

Between 10-15 years ago, I used to draw comic page commissions where I would offer to illustrate a page of script by the commissioner.  The idea was that this would set me apart from all of the artists doing mostly pinup work, and it also sounded like a fun project.  It *was* pretty fun for a while, although the kind of jobs that would come my way quickly transitioned (so to speak) into mostly fetish or transformation pieces. I was OK with this for a while, and did them for a couple of years.  I felt an ego boost from having folks enjoy my work and be willing to pay for it, but eventually wasn't real happy with the subject matter and ceased

Have you considered recreating Judge Dredd by Brian Bolland?

Definitely - I've considered recreating a few of my favorite Eagle JD covers, just haven't gotten around to it as I've been focusing mostly on pre-code comics for a while.

Your work on the five-page "Weld" story has the look and feel of Brian Bolland's work on the early Judge Dredd, or perhaps a story from "Weird War," one of my favorite titles from the 1970s. Keep up the great work!
