Take Me With You

Last week I took my little brother to the movies to see Iron Man 2. He's only five, so he's growing so much every day. During the big fight scene, he pulled at my arm and (speaking some with his little open mouth, but mostly with his huge blue eyes), whispered something like "Lisa, I am so glad this is not in 3D".

That's something that happened last week. And as much as the moment fills me up, I know the specialness of it doesn't read so good to a third person. So when I crawl into the comic drawings of Aidan Koch, I wonder how he does it.

I wonder how he can take something as elusive as a moment, and neatly wrap it up in a page of loose, inky marks and quiet grey lines. Is there a secret technique to not just show someone what happened, but pull them into it with you?

I'll leave my thoughts in the comments, because they'll be as good as yours....

These are some nice illos. And, I think Mason was right, Iron Man would be to much in 3d.

There is something awfully 1960s about these drawings.
I like that :D

I've never seen artwork where the line & brushwork are dreamy
