My grandfather raised roosters for fighting. He passed away a while back but I still remember his ranch and all the different kinds of roosters he had. I decided to use this theme as a way to make a mock up for a comic and to see if I could actually do one. I made four pages and I’m very happy to have done this because it gave me a lot of hands on experience on how to actually make one of these books. I have to admit it is quite hard but I am looking forward to working on a much more extensive story.
Incidentally I got a chance to see Daniel Clowes here in a book store in SOHO last week. He has to be one of my favorite comic book artists.
