Blurb 1.0 2

Some more artwork and sample pages regarding Blurb which I mentioned a while back. This involved the first iteration of the storyline and characters that I eventually revamped and published a few years later.

The story itself wasn't too coherent, but, it was done in one page installations, that continued a basic plot involving thugs, freight trains, and UFO's. At the time, I'd contributed to a couple of magazines, and submitted the comic strip as one off's. I got some positive feedback, although one person had admitted to me that thought a little kid had drawn it.

Best of all, I'd gotten up the nerve to submit it to Fantagraphics for publication. Below is the rejection letter I got a couple weeks later. I did learn a lot from feedback like this, and, started a second iteration of the strip and characters a few years later.

I always enjoy your work. Thank you for posting the letter from Fantagraphics, it had some jewels we all can use.
