Another of the "One Page Wonder" series, with the added constraint of repeating the same picture on every page. Repetition's a powerful device in comics, this takes it to extremes. The tear in his eye was inspired by one of Scott McCloud's morning improv strips, which itself uses repetition to stunning effect.
Using two narrators instead of one, and identifying them by different coloured captions in an otherwise black and white strip felt like a daring innovation at the time. Maybe I should get out more...

Monster movies Dorling-Kindersley style. I did this piece as a cover art sample, so here it is unadorned and with a logo (that I just made up), lettering and trim area.

 And another sphinx from my sketchbook.
