O.P.'s SKETCHBLOG: "JAZZY" Jeff Heermann

Jeff Heermann is an old internet comic- illustration buddy; his work never fails to astound. A man who is caught in the raptourous grip of 4-color nostalgia, Roman Noir and reverence to such comics/illustration luminaries as Ditko, Krigstein, Aparo, Jerry Robinson and Commander Mark. A slave to his 4-color fantasies; yet a trailblazer with the fusion of tradition ink and pen and the digital. We salute you JEFF HEERMANN- now gimme my sawbuck!

Today in our first installment of OTHER PEOPLE’S SKETCHBLOG; the sketchblog that answers the burning question, “Oh Flameape, what are your favorite artists pals and what are they drawing lately?”; I offer you this nugget of INTENSE, PULSEPOUNDING GENIUS!!!

Unfinished: World traveler, or, NYAAAAAGH!

From world traveler From world traveler This is just not true- it is in fact a distorted viewpoint. But here I am wasting blog-time on this thing that represents the abyss of “NYAGGGHH ” that all artists fall into from time to time.

Started this thing a few years ago. It’s STILL unfinished!! By that I mean colored lettered and thrown up somewhere for all to see. Why don’t I get things lkike this done? I have to be honest, it shouldn’t but unfinished old art projects like these drive me insane- AND I DON’T EVEN CARE ABOUT THEM ANYMORE! Huff-wheeze!  What’s my fucking deal, man? Why can’t I just let them go? But I don’t they always kind of linger- “you didn’t finish me…if you don’t go back and fix me up- you CAN’T MOVE ON IN YOUR LIFE…”

Okay, I’m going upstairs to love my girlfriend and will allow this to be the time it’s “up there” and call this one finished.


For now. ;P
