…and my God, is the art bad.
I’m a cartoonist when I’m not writing here or being a historian. I don’t claim to be the best cartoonist ever – in fact, I’m far from it. I do, however, write my own webcomic, which is here, and even my art is better than this. Fortunately for the artist, he or she wasn’t credited by the Nuggets. If I’d drawn this or written the script for it, I wouldn’t want anyone to know it was me, either.
Here’s the cover:
That doesn’t look so bad, I suppose, but the cover art is usually done in more detail than the art inside the comic since it’s designed to catch the reader’s eye and make them pick up the book. A lot of the facial features really disturb me, though – there’s something weird about the way they’re drawn and I can’t put my finger on it.
All four pages – yes, four pages – of the comic, along with my art critic comments, after the jump.
