NOTES FROM OTHERS:

Well first off I think you accomplished one of he main goals of writing a comic, and that is you have made me curious to see where this is going. After reading that you had drawn a comic I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by how well your drawings conveyed the consistency of the characters. They are actually really good! I think this my favorite art work of yours that I have seen, and it is definitely IVY-esque. Keep going!

this is really neat, yet another skill that has come in to light from someone whom has so many already. Good stuff the man with moustache looks really good.

I have a slightly different perspective on your "old" artwork now that I've read through and seen your newer work. You've improved! Though, there are still great things consistent with your newer work; good facial expressions, for one, and insightful "inner dialogue".

I like the long hallway panel. Kind of abstract but rather pretty in its way. Your first Fred under it is the most "real" looking--since this first comic you've become more consistent with your characters' faces. That's no mean feat considering the level of realism you draw this comic in.
