Found a treasure trove of early work in a box labeled “BULLSHIT SCRAPS!” this weekend. Here’s one of my very first attempts at color airbrush while still at Kubert School. I think this is the one I figured out that I could make a tonal version of the “Kirby Krackle”. I was putting in the stars last and as I did, I remember how the space gas suddenly became much more tangible to the eye. It was a color technique that became a mainstay of my Epic-era stuff.
