Sketch_battles Theme 7!

##Sketch_Battles "Battling the blank page!"

Theme 7- redraw a panel from a comic, pick something challenging.

 For this ,I picked a panel from the Valerian comic "At the Edge of the Great Void" because the artist Mezieres always amazes me on how he can fit so much world, characters, and dialog into a scene and the panel will still not feel compressed.

 I changed the girl because I felt like it, and the bent knee from the original was the catalyst, yet I still tried to give her that long alien look. #

Tools-pigma Micron pens, Jellyroll white.

So this week was been busy, I've been given some really great drawing Opportunities and 
Have been pulling a lot of late nights  and all nighters this week as a result .

I even put out a new book of dream stories, "Garbage Fries", with my friend Becky and the dog Taco, who wishes his name was Tyson, after Mike.

A small test run of books we printed up, sold out in 2 days, so we are off to the printer for a new batch!

But despite how busy it's been ,the bro, Matt and I still made time to enjoy some Blaze Pizza tonight.
 At this point it's almost a weekly tradition.
