Welcome back to Tales from the Brain Jar. When we had left off I had picked up a wonderfully gory Murmur picture from Ethan Van Sciver. It wouldn’t be for a couple more months before I got my next sketch at Dragon Con. To this day I still have problems explaining what I want from an artist when get a commission for the book. The brain jar thing can be hard to explain and it is usually easier to just hand them the book so they can see what has already been done. I love all the sketches in my book, but the one you are about to see is the one that other artists stop and comment about.
What is it? Check after the jump.
Eric Powell’s Goon was my next sketch. This sketch was done so quickly that it still blows my mind. I was chatting with Eric about the book and the where the next stories were going. Trying to get hints about Chinatown (it was only 05 at the time). All the time we are talking he is drawing and then before I know it the sketch was already completed.
