Anonymous asked: A lot of artists make their name making super detailed/technical/or busy work, then strip it down to super simple (but still beautiful) images. Why does that happen? Mike mignola in hellboy is an example. It seems like you and good ol patrick kyle have both done this as well. Just curious for your thoughts on that. You ever think you'll blast out more of that lose #4 detail?
a lot of my work used detail and density as a crutch, where i’d try to cover up mistakes or hide weak compositions behind general business. i want to become a more efficient cartoonist - doing more with less, or whatever. i’d like to think that if my drawings are becoming more minimal, it’s because i’m getting better at boiling down a page to its most essential parts.
