“You know it’s never fifty-fifty in a marriage. It’s always seventy-thirty, or sixty-forty. Someone falls in love first. Someone puts someone else up on a pedestal. Someone works very hard to keep things rolling smoothly; someone else sails along for the ride.”

“The show brings together legendary artists from the early pioneering days of media art (Olia Lialina, JODI, Wolfgang Staehle); artists like Eva and Franco Mattes, Constant Dullaart, and Oliver Laric who have been working and showing internationally for many years; and a new generation of younger artists just gaining wider recognition (Petra Cortright, Katie Torn, Austin Lee and Rollin Leonard).”
Hey! It’s Jodi and Sherwood Baker from my adventure comic concept “WEST”. They’re pretty much polar opposites in that one’s a giant pink ball of energy and warmth, and the other is a stoic and serious man of religion and temperance. Still they somehow always end up working together in my mind?
Also in my opinion they’re great examples of why simple is sometimes better in character design.
I seriously can’t stop drawing these two. Especially Jodi. She’s too much fun I tell ya.
