Chicago: Year One
And just like that, I’ve lived in Chicago for a full year now. I probably wouldn’t have remembered something that specific unless I had written a blog entry here last June, back when I was working on A Wrinkle In Time pages and wandering my neighborhood aimless on a Fourth of July desperate to make new friends. And as a strange little milestone, I did this week’s NewCity cover.
If you’re unsure of that building in the middle, that would be the Tribune Tower, a Chicago landmark a la the Chicago Tribune, which may or may not be recognizable to anyone, Chicago-ians included.
Chicago architecture never ceases to make little or no sense to me. How does the Tribune Tower exist in the same eyeful as that sleek and slender Sears Tower?
I also submitted a piece to Kris Mukai’s new zine all about everyone’s new obsession A Game of Thrones. Back in November, I started reading the series and after a five month literary gorge-fest, finished all four books just as the HBO series started which help satiate my never ending need for my Westeros gossip fix.
Brienne did what? Robb Stark said that? Oh no, what did Cersei do this time?!?
I’ve come to have a soft spot for the Baratheon family and Kris’ ‘zine gave me such an excuse to draw some ‘fan fart’.
I’ll leave you with another little prep drawing for my new comic.
Hope you guys have a stellar Fourth!
