Tinkering with Color

Seriously folks. There are so many bugs in blogspot. I really should be able to choose between regular and italic font whenever I like.

...I digress.

My palette has always been limited by my disinterest in color. I enjoy color, but I have always found it entirely unnecessary when it comes to my own work. I'm one of those kids that chose "black" as their favorite color way back in kindergarden . Given a coloring book I would turn the paper around and start drawing with a pencil.

I'm surrounded by color 24/7, must I contribute as frequently as all the other kids that like to draw?

The answer to the vast majority is, yes.

I don't mind working in color at all, but I've always been criticized for my narrow spectrum. What can I say? I'm a total amateur. I literally only just began to take color seriously.

I've been afflicted with laziness ever since senior year of high school. In all seriousness, I think I might never have been diagnosed with "senoritus" if my peers hadn't warned me against it in the first place. If allowed to live in ignorance, I might have remained the diligent automaton that I once was.

But as much as my laziness has affected me artistically, I can't say that it is the sole reason why I choose to primarily work in black and white. Perhaps I wish to leave more to the imagination? Or mabye I really AM some kind of philistine?
Time will tell, I reckon.

...Anyhoo, I'm running out of ink in all my fine pens. I'm left with all the wider pigment markers so I thought, why not fool around a little?

This comic is an experiment more than anything else. Not sure if you should expect another page...

I remember that!! Man, the Museum and Science Center went really downhill these past 5 years or so. No more giant arthropods.

Kids today are getting cheated.
