Went to another great panel moderated by Karen Green at Comic Arts Brooklyn; Tim Lane, Jim Rugg, and Ben Marra: Neo Noir. Inspiring and fun to draw. At Comic Arts Brooklyn.

Figuring out the last thirty pages of West Side. Index cards become pages of dialogue and thumbnail sketches and each card gets distilled down to a comics page. Rounding third and headed for Home. . .desktop

Two more West Side pages. Very early in the morning Hyman runs into an old acquaintance, Elsie.

Creepy

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Tonight I was looking for a writer I used to work with and found a site that has PDFs of old magazines. I found a lot of my illustration work from the early 90s. Including this. The article was about the threat of religious extremism. What’s a little creepy is that this was the early 90s, not post-911. And I wasn’t living in NYC at the time. I was livingin London. Guess I was thinking about NYC.

So I am up to page 45 of my WEST SIDE comic. It’s about the Jewish community on the upper west side of New York City and the Irish-American Community on the West Side’s Hell’s Kitchen in 1980. On page 36 Jonny gets shot. He’s not happy about that. Here are the pencils next to the final inks (w/ color). Two panels; the first where he just got shot and then his reaction to it. In the panel where he is looking over his shoulder I realized, as I was inking, that he needed to look a little more pissed off. After all, he just got shot. In the pencils he looks a little more resigned to his fate. But he survives. That’s because he’s got spunk.

These two original Kirby pages are framed and hang on the wall above my drawing board. A constant reminder of what hard work, talent and imagination can do. From where I sit, it’s like looking up at Mount Everest.
