A matter of perspective

Enduring the bitter cold on a windy Maine beach in 16 degree weather yesterday, my friend John Dusenberry and I noticed an interesting phenomenon -- a stark, almost perfectly straight line of white etched across the distant shore rocks. It was immediately apparent that this was due to ice on the rocks, frozen during high tide.


Walking over to the rocks, that bold white line began to break apart, and as we moved to a position where we could look down on some of those rocks, the dramatic straight white line collapsed into a jumble of fragments.

It reminded us both of the importance of perspective -- things often look very different from another viewpoint. -- PL

Isn't that the truth. I got a book on perspective drawing lately and it's amazing how many "tricks" you can play with it.

Since Dover Publications has published collections of comics from Mirage veterans (Steve Murphy, Jim Lawson, and Don Simpson), would you have any interest in them reprinting some of your past non-TMNT comics work (Terrorsaur & Commandosaurs mini comics, Planet Racers, Stupid Heroes, some material from Gobbledygook, and maybe old material from Snarf and Barbaric Fantasy)?
