Second day of the new year and the first page from an old sketchbook. I’m pretty sure this book was finished in 1999. The lumpy thing at the bottom of the page is a sketch of one of Jeremy’s Germboys from the story Jeremy Loader Never Could Pick Up After Himself. I wrote the story back in 1992 or ’93 and it saw print in Asylum #3. Pia Guerra penciled it and I inked it.
In 1999 I was considering redoing the story with my own illustrations. Nothing wrong with Pia’s work (it was excellent), I just wanted to have a version of the story that was all me. I never got further than the sketching stage.
