I’ve been having some fun lately drawing pages, panels and characters from Mike Mignola’s The Amazing Screw-On Head and Other Curious Objects. Not that I’m saying I’m any good at it, but I get so involved with rendering the details of these drawings, learning with my hand what only looking will not convey, whiling away a lunch hour like it was only 5 minutes, having fun like a kid with a new box of crayons and a coloring book. There’s that word fun again. Never was that common in my vocabulary, sad but true. But I am having fun now, especially with Emperor Zombie. Now I certainly appreciate, nay, admire, the grit and ingenuity of our Mr. Head, but I am smitten with Emperor Z. He’s the perfect foil for doughty Mr. Head; a puckish Darth Vader with his soulful, empty eyes and his ever-present halo of flies. How can you not love this guy?
