Wow, absolutely gorgeous work, and a really well told story. I love the whiteboard page.

I love your art. Your line art and coloring are fantastic. You admit to a tendency towards realism and I would go with that -- it is by far the strongest stuff. Maybe when you want to go "cartoony" you should compromise with characters that have a little more volume/3d-ishness to them? Kind of like you did with the "piranahs."

I'm surprised you didn't get into grad school. You definitely have the talent to work professionally.

Wow man, I love this. The work is pro, and I can relate to quite a bit of it.

I'm also pretty surprised that you didn't get into grad school. If you've got a heart for comics you could probably get into SCAD's sequential art Masters program with this kind of work. Kind of expensive though, but they do have an online program for it as well.

Either way, don't give up, you've got a lot of talent.

really good stuff. I work realistic comics as well.

I am also a substitute teacher for 30 different schools. I'm surprised you don't like elementary school. Those kids are alot of fun. Middle school, thats where you can inspire students. high schools, easy as stealing candy from your grandma.

Keep it up. Good luck.

Thinking, maybe we could collaborate on a comic, some day. Hmm..

seeing this guy's stuff actually reminded me of yours, deafguy...


but yeah, I agree, this story is really great. And I like the idea of changing styles to reflect the story like you did here. Each work fine within their own right so it's not really distracting to me.

Awesome! Yeah, if you can't get into SCAD with this kind of thing, it would surprise me very much.

Whoa, this is very nice.

I can understand not wanting to teach jr. high, when middle schoolers get in big groups they can skelotonize a cow in two minutes.
