Coming to a Head
So this is the end of Coming Distractions.
Or at least the end of the temporal cycle that makes up our comic ouroboros. It’s been six years (minus a two-year break) of ups, downs, and zig-zags on a jet-fueled roller coaster of creativity. The story went from comedic to farcical to existential. Artistically, it was like a Richter scale of experimentation; full color here, black-and-white there, and it maybe there would be shading.
Naturally, I can say I learned a lot about my own process, but I also learned about the collaborative process. Pat Johnson is far and away one of the most creative people on the planet. The sooner he becomes responsible for a mainstream media outlet, the better off we’ll all be. I won’t lie, I’ve got a huge man-crush on him because he can literally come up with an idea for anything any time. So when he focuses his power on developing a story, you have to tie yourself to the mast to keep from being swept up in it.
I’m not sure where we’re going from here, but I do know that it can only be somewhere great. Have a Merry Christmas, everyone, and we’ll see you all in the new year.
