The Angry Man

I recently scored a pile of comics from the op-shop. The treasured find re-ignited my love of comic illustrations. The varied line and blacked out ink along with the mood lighting and dramatic poses all contribute to the impact of every well though out cell. It inspired me to get out my fat pen nib and black ink bucket and get to work. The result was this handsome looking fellow who was inspired by an angry work site supervisor I had to work for, who went out of his way to ruin peoples day and possibly lives.

What ever happened to Cowboys? Those badass, slow talking,straw chewing gunslingers that every kid dressed up as. In this modern age of Vampires and Zombies the humble Cowboy seems to have been forgotten. We'll, not me! This illustration tip's it's hat to those heroes of the West and pays homage to the forgotten Cowboys.

I've recently started watching Band of Brothers for a second time around, re-kindling my respect for field medics in WW2. The bravery of medics who ran to the help of the wounded with no defence is something that absolutely captivates me. That bravery, bordering madness is what inspired this illustration.
