Hey. I said I’d draw Conan next, but I got really itchy to finish a drawing in a single weekend, so I picked up this (which I’d started last year.) Since about the summer, I’ve been doing various commissions for my friends which all involved pretty girls as robot-fighting ninjas, cat-faced socialites and soon-to-be-married lovelies. So I took Friday and Saturday and Sunday as a chance to do a manly doodle all of my own to offset all that. Looking back through my Flickr, I’m unhappy with just about everything I’ve drawn ever, but for now at least, I’m happy with this one. Bit of a deliberate riff on Herge, and with the Iron God, I’ve tried to tip my hat to Moebius as well. The giants of Gallic Comic Bookery.
