Outsider Artist of the Week – 2-27-12
Paul Pope and Blushing Oboe Player
I really dig Paul Pope's comics. Why hasn't he done anything except cover art recently?! Sometimes I like to redraw parts of comics to see how they were made in hopes of picking up a few tricks from my favorite artists. Its kind of my way of cutting open an artist's work to see how it all works.

Here's the final page:
You can read the rest of this comic here.
