That moment…

when you’ve been staring at small variations of color for hours and go a little bug-eyed. This is my favorite:

David James Keaton is a Gorilla

Ever since Mr Keaton’s book, the Last Projector has come out he’s made a number of references to our time together at Thackeray’s Books and how, at times, I would draw him as a gorilla. So to celebrate winning This Is Horror’s 2014 Best Cover of the Year Award it seemed appropriate to dig up those sketches and post them for your… enjoyment? Sure. We’ll go with enjoyment. Here’s two sketches of David as a gorilla, and a┬ámultipage Empire Strikes Back homage that captures our relationship.
