Alterna Comics Originals '12
Ink & watercolor on trading cards

            This year I had the great privilege to be part of Alterna Comics first trading card set Alterna Comics Originals.  The set was done to celebrate five years strong in producing great creator owned comics.  My role was to create five original trading card sized drawings called sketch cards.

White Whale

White Whale

            After many passes on Rt 30 I was finally able to paint my white whale.  Like Ahab I’ve felt this need to capture my obsession. This tree has been in the back of my mind for seven years.  Three years of commuting to college from Reading to Lancaster and then four since graduation.  I needed to paint this tree.  I’m assuming most probably don’t even notice it.  Upon first sighting I loved the character and story.  A lonely, gigantic tree in the middle of a field.

            So where does this painting coming in?
