These drawings are quite old at this point but I figure they're appropriate considering the news I got today!
Artist extraordinaire Paul Pope is running a three week residency in Florida this coming October. I applied in May and found out this afternoon that I was accepted. Well at least kind of...
Apparently, I've been selected as an "alternate associate resident" which essentially means that I've been put on the wait-list. If someone who was accepted drops out or can't participate, I get to take their place.
The possibility that I might get to study under Mr. Pope is really exciting. Even if things don't work out, it was a nice boost to find out that I might actually have some skill hahah.
While 100% is probably my favorite work of his, I have a serious soft spot for his Batman work and I made numerous efforts to copy drawings from Batman Year 100. I also did an original drawing heavily indebted to his interpretation that I've included also.
