This was another project foe Boom! Studios where they asked me to do a cover for a comic based on one of my favorite childhood movies. I realized while working on this how much influence that film had on the development of my artistic choices.
there is a ‘yes’ in my every ‘no’
and a 'no’ in my every 'yes’.
i am a puzzle that changes every minute-
like a labyrinth, you’ll be lost in.
i am fierce when you treat me
with too much care
and feisty when you treat me with too little.
let me let you in on a little secret-
even i don’t know what it is that i want,
but don’t ever say that to me,
for i know how to bloom beautifully
just as i know how to burn things to the ground.

Hello me again, I'm a couple chapters into the Battle of the Labyrinth and I want you to know that I always picture Nico in my head EXACTLY as you draw him. Which is funny because half the characters in my head look like they do in the movie, half just come from my imagination, and then Nicos in his own art style lol. Loving these books!
Oh my gosh B’D That’s really flattering!! Thank you! I always imagine him exactly as I draw him too so you’re not alone! (And my friend too apparently! So that makes the three of us! HAHAHHAHA) These books are great! Can’t wait for you to meet Jason and Nico—together ;___;
