I was going for the idea that almost every day is kinda suck. Like many things, it might look like brilliant from the outside, but once you're in full-time you find that there's plenty of crap, and precious little awesome to go around.
I saw your lines first and loved the piece and then found this. Kudos to Dan, but dude, seriously? I like this piece.. the attitude and the emotion... is it frustration, or perhaps annoyance. Truly strong work. I thank you for posting it.
It helps to have known him (at least insofar as any of us "know" each other on the Internet) before he got huge. Dan and I go back almost as far as the Net and I... we were both part of the ComixMatrix community, and sort of precursor to sites like Deviantart, and then he went on and made himself all awesome and famous n' shit.
To be honest, I don't presume on him to ask for his colors unless I can repay him somehow... I respect his work too much to ask for him to do it free.
i TOLD you to kill the monster while it was small, but NO..you had to let it grow up into the 500 megaton giant that is DANIMATION!!!
