For Another Friend



Henry Gilroy is an awesome writer. Hire him! I got to work with him on a project an WOW!! He knows his stuff. He carries around a sketchbook with the theme of "Your favorite Robert E Howard / HP Lovecraft character". I just happen to love both those authors ability to create some neat visceral visuals. I was happy to do a piece, or two. Of course having the book be over half filled with Bruce Timm's homages, tends to dampen ones ability. These were the best I could do.

A+++ That's right!!!! You heard me mutha f-ah, an A triple plus! It don't get better than an A triple plus, unless wait a minute, an A quadruple plus would actually trump an A triple plus, so..... no, wait, a quintuple would......fuck!!!! I want to give you an A+ and then an infinity sign after the plus, but I can't figure out how to.........let me check google..........ah ha!!! Option+5

You officially get an A∞

Congratulations!!!!

Nice! I especially like the way you held out the figure in the top piece with the pattern of the linework from the background, and resisted the use of an outline to define the main figure.

You rock!

Hey Bryan,

I am the guy who was lucky enough to get those amazing drawings in my book. I showed them to Mike Mignola at Wondercon and he showered them with praise, "This guy is great!"

Anyway, again I owe you my appreciation... or at least dinner!

Not really anonymous,
Henry
