Well I just finished reading issue one of Opey. Man sucks to be a dud. Kids can be so cruel. Anyways man I like the artwork. Your shading and inking skills are definitely up to par with the pros. This is material that publishers dream of receving. Good job man. Keep up the good work. = )
Thank you so much for the wonderful comment. It means a great deal to me, really. I love drawing Opey. The marvelous challenge about this comic is doing a story where the main protagonist has no face, yet getting his expressions and feelings to come through regardless.

You're welcome. Opey deserves recognition. I still remember the scene when it rains and his face looks like it's crying. That's some pretty powerful stuff right there. Overall you're doing a pretty good job with Opey. Keep it up dude.
Okay, I actually laughed out loud at "kawaii desu" I've noticed a few comic artists depict themselves rather unflatteringly. Crumb comes to mind. But I somehow suspect that you're not quite as scruffy as you seem here. XD
I think my depiction of myself is still pretty close, though.
Crumb and underground comics is one of the many influences on my work. When I went to college, I took courses under Frank Stack, who was one of the first American underground cartoonists. He taught me a lot, and I wish I had a smidgeon of his skill and artistry.
Wow! That's some pretty impressive talent to learn from! I believe I recall seeing some of his work in the old "Yellow Dog" comics (that would be way before your time... ). I have almost zero talent for cartooning and comics, but I made a hobby of studying them.
It´s so funny and energetic preview! Those girls are so adorable. Your comic-self looks awfully stressed and cranky in a funny way, wich makes a great contrast between those girls in sugarhype and their maker.
I enjoyed this one. The more I see the more I want to watch the creator in action. Maybe a day will come when I will have the chance to watch live the creation process of one of your works. I admire you.
