Butch R. Mann Send His Regrets

Lee Adam Herold drew this for me probably back in 2000ish on the anniversary of the webcomic I was drawing at the time: Burnt Dog Radio. Lee’s sense of humor ran pretty dark but it almost always made me laugh. I always appreciated his bravery in pursuing jokes in somewhat dangerous territory. I’d like to see Josh Whedon build a show around a psychotic mama’s boy.

Anyhow Lee had this amazing sponge and ink technique for his comic. He showed me how he did it once — it’s extremely clever but not necessarily easy to get as much nuance out of it as he consistently was able to do.  He hasn’t updated in a bit but I’d still recommend checking out Chopping Block.
