I found this George Orwell essay called Why I Write at a flea market. Just like I suspected, I was blown away and inspired by it.
Since then, I've been on a bit of a Orwellian kick. Currently, I'm drawing the characters from Animal Farm in my spare time. I'm sure some will see the influence of Ralph Steadman's illustrated version of Animal Farm but then again when is my work NOT influenced by Ralph Steadman?
I'm happy with the Pigs so far (from top to bottom: Old Major, Snowball, Napoleon, and Squeeler) I really want to get into some scenery for them and maybe a few story boards. Feel free to comment...everything on this sight is available in print form.
