Detective Comics 678

Who I am artistically and who I want to be artistically are sometimes at odds. I can reduce anything to its barest components and recreate with a few pencil strokes, but I always wanted to be one of those guys who use a lot of shadows like Mignola or Kelly Jones. Denny O'neil (great name that) was a stellar gentleman, who was as good as his word and would occasionally send me scripts to see where I was artistically... I've sold most of these pages. Another artist suggested that when it comes to Batman my style stiffens up. I know I was trying something different artistically, so it wasn't my best.
