Work In Progress: "Real Spit #1"

Real Spit #1 (sketch) by Samax Amen. ballpoint pen.

I've been kicking around the idea of drawing comic strips based on real life situations and conversations I have had (mostly of the WTF variety) for some time now. I'm inspired alot by indie comics superfreak Brandon Graham, who is really really good at them, but while working on an interview I recently posted on the GhettoManga blog, I realized that I used to do stuff like that all the time... In college, I had pen pals that I wrote to regularly, but instead of writing a regular letter, I would draw a 2 or three page comic starring me talking directly to the reader.
It never occurred to me to make copies, but most of the people I sent them to have probably kept them... I bet they will all turn up on eBay after I'm dead...
Anyways, I definitely want to draw more comics, so hopefully I can use this to encourage myself... maybe not. I am doing them mostly for myself, but you know me... they will probably end up in a sketchbook for sale in my bookstore at some point! I dunno...
please let me know what you think...
peace,
-samax
