So Freud would probably argue that I'm still in the anal phase.
I'm not sure when the original pencils were done, maybe 2010. Possibly 2009? Earlier? Later? I think summer 2010. Maybe.
Then, the weekend of Zine Fest Houston 2013, when all of the ArmzRace menfolk were gathered to storm the city of H-Town with their perverted comics wares, I decided, instead of making some new sketches or comics or something, to ink and color some old work in our compatriot's sketchbook.
The @$$hole comic is just one example of revisiting old work. Other examples will follow.
In revisiting my apology comic, I strove to truly capture the gradient of skin tones that exist in the nether-regions of some men-folk. Since no hand-mirror was available at the time, I had to wing it and go from memory.
Notice the Kirby-inspired speckles crackling in the air around the word balloon... or is it cloud? Yes, Kirby is King, but I need better speckles to truly be Kirby-dot quality approved.
Yep, someone needs to wipe better. It's a mess and there are some crumbs or something going on there. Hmm, and maybe I could've implied some curvature of the ass-cheeks and thigh areas. That's the hamstring tops, right?
I'm so immature sometimes. Like, where do this ideas come from? Is the anus puckered enough or should their be more pucker lines? What the fuck song is playing on my phone right now and what's it got to do with all this anal? Ah yes, "Logan's Run" (brilliant homage to the sci-fi movie) from the Sexy Beast soundtrack. This must be my "intense" playlist. There's some anal in that movie. Did I mention this post may be NSFW? Well, fucking listen.
