Say hello to a guest Idiot

And I mean that in the best way possible - Ladies and Gentlemen, Derrick Wyatt!

Here's a stupid collaborative effort that dates all the way back to our days on ¡Mucha Lucha! For reasons I won't get into, I scribbled an ugly mess of a drawing of Jean-Luc Picard in a fat orange marker on a post-it, and left it at Derrick's desk. Soon after, he gave it back to me, with a layer of black ink added by him - thus creating a brand new style of drawing that I intend to use some day to illustrate my gangster comic. Some day! So the true value of the Idiot Style is revealed - it may not create beautiful drawings, but it's unbeatable as a means of springboarding fresh ideas that can be incorporated into a finished production (not that I've finished (or even started) my gangster comic). I'll post an example of Idiot Style drawing that led to something useful next post.

Oh, if you just got here from, the Super-D's are just below. Scroll on down, and check out some of the other blogs in the sidebar - lots of Titans staff with amazing stuffs (may I recommend Norm's Mignola-style Raven drawing?).

Also, I guess Jean-Luc Picard is ™ and © someone or other. Probably Paramount.

That is an awesome style. I think it'd be a fresh change for comics. Power to you guys. I'd love to see what you come up with for that ganster comic when you come up with it lol. Wish I could have a career doing the stuff you get to do.

Picard's lips have never looked so lovely, if I do say so my own self.

I agree with the blue man. Furthermore, I agree with the potato farm girl. Toward that end, I also agree with...

Aw fuck... I got nothin' ta say, I just wanted to see my name in a post!

Great stuff, Ben!
