Just a quickie today. I did this piece early this morning before getting in a couple of hours of work. It is ink, marker and color pencils on a trading card size piece of Canson paper that I cut down. I have been revisiting the O'Neil/Adams Green Lantern/Green Arrow run from the 1970s. That run impacted me as an 10 year old. I discovered them late when a friend of mine had the two issues that showed Green Arrow's ward, Speedy as a heroin junkie. I don't think I had much of a social conscious at that point in my life. Who does at 10? But after discovering and reading the run back then, I developed one. My early drawings from back then were bad imitations of Neal Adams versions of Green Lantern and Green Arrow fighting drug dealers. Now looking at those issues, I think they are just as strong. Sure it's dated by some of the references and slang, but there is still something there. And the art is still incredible.
Spent most of the day at Brighthouse field watching the Tampa Bay Ray beat the Phillies, 5 to 3 in 10 innings in the Phillies home field, so it was a good day! Hamburgers, hot dogs, beer, peanuts, CrackerJacks and baseball on a Sunday afternoon. Hard to beat that. Now it's time for some dinner and then a few more hours of work. I hope everyone had a good weekend!
