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.

Okay, enough of that for now

Somehow my Idiot Style blog is becoming the Super-D theatre. Not that I'm knocking Super-D style drawing, which I obviously love doing, but it wasn't really my original intent for this blog. I'll transition slowly, though - first, here's some more Super-D:

And now here's some more drawings of the same character, not in Super-D.

I think these were at least partly inspired by Juan Bobillo, who's drawing She-Hulk for Marvel right now. He draws a strangely fluid Spider-Man, probably more in tune with the original Ditko version than any other Spider-Man artist that comes to mind. Speaking of Marvel, Spider-Man is ™ and © Marvel Comics.
