An Illusive Reality - New Blog


Hey folks...well, 2007 is just about over, but I finally completed the work I started last year on 'digitially remastering' my 1990 'graphic short story' I did in my first year at the School Of Visual Arts, in NYC. I created a new blog to host the pages, rather than clutter up this blog. I think it works best to have it as it's own seperate entity. Click on the link to the right to check it out. Hope you like it! Here's to a great 2008!

pretty cool blast from the past here justin!

liked seeing the origianl book as well. how did you lay out the type on the original??? we take advantage of the computer so much nowadays don't we!

especially liked the updated cover art!! overall it has a nice dave mckean mixed media look to it. cool short story too.

Jason - thanks, bro! The type on the original was just typewritten printouts that I cut out and pasted down. Real low tech! Yeh, the computer has definitely helped tremendously. I only wish I had it back then!

Yeh, I was looking at a lot of Dave Mckean around that time. Not to mention Bill Sienkiewicz, Jon Muth and Kent Williams. I used to buy books they did, just for the covers! (like every issue of Sandman!).

man i just checked out your story justin...
that's some pretty ambitious storytelling...
it's funny how much harder we would work on something back then....computers have made us all lazy...I definitely see the McKean and Sienkiewicz inspiration and those guys were tops in the genre as
far as I'm concerned...nice work!

Thanks, Glenn! You're right, though, I definitely spent a lot more time on my art back in those days. Then again, I was in school and could! The full-time gig thing gets in the way...part of what the story is about, funnily enough!
