People paying attention may remember all those days ago, when I posted about The Fucking Cops' Fuck You Up With Some Truth record that comes with a magazine size booklet, which I did some art for, including a comic adaptation of their noir punk narrative, Gloria.
Here's the second two pages from GLORIA, Part II:
These two pages were a huge huge challenge, artistically. A lot going on and a lot to convey, including a mood and overall emotive tone that I think came across really well. If I had one qualm, I think it would be that my color is a little too ...much. Like, I just went a little bonkers with this one. I like it, but ...yeah. Anyway, I like that there's ways get paid to do comics without actually working in the comics industry.
Here's my homie Asbestos Breath's double page spread from Fuck You Up With Some Truth.
