I have no words.

An important distinction

For anyone who critiques art, the cry is often heard “Well, I bet it’s better than anything you can draw!”  In many instances during STC’s run, even for the worst art, this is absolutely true, in my case at least.  I’m not an artist.  But there is a very important distinction between “better than I can do” and “professional quality”.

Ecco the Dolphin is a fondly remembered title from the Mega Drive.  It received two strips during STC’s life.  Uniquely, its creative line-up altered during the first story’s run.

This picture is better than I can do:

And this one is professional quality:

Ladies and gentlemen, I may be no artist, but I knows what I likes.
