I said it was going to be something special, didn’t I?
Like a lot of comic fans, I often sit around and think “Hey… I wonder what Jim Lee is doing right now?” A large part of me hopes that he’s in a sunbeam somewhere, blissfully napping. Or maybe sitting by the window, staring out at the waves crashing against a beach. Or even chasing the light of a laser-pointer, much to the delight of his friends and family.
Yeah, OK, I may think Jim Lee is some kind of cat. But think about it, it’s a theory that actually kinda fits with his art style and also how long it takes to get said art.
Regardless, I like that dude and I hope he’s enjoying whatever bit of catnip he’s gotten into.
Part Two of our tale comes to us from the same place as Part One, Mr. Richard Clark:
Born in a crossfire hurricane (actually Cleveland, OH), Richard P. Clark’s illustration career began in 1993 while still an undergraduate at The Columbus College of Art and Design. Since then, he’s worked for a wildly varied list of clients in several industries-among them HBO, Playboy, The Wall Street Journal and Alcoholics Anonymous. He’s been finding work again in the Comic Industry, including a recent job for Dark Horse providing finishes over Darick Robertson’s breakdowns for The Guild-Vork comic. He’s hoping this recent turn into the comic lane sticks as there are literally scores of stories he’d like to unleash on the world. Mr. Clark currently resides in Upstate NY after a 10-year tour of duty in Brooklyn with his wife, daughter and a goofy dog named Barnaby.
Have a great weekend, everyone! See you back here for Part 3 on Tuesday!
