'Under One Roof'

TOM - Here is a five page comic I did for Ditmas #2. The book is a collection of short stories put together by Brandon Zamora. I worked on this project over the winter, but didn't want to post it until it debuted at Mocca a couple weeks ago. Ditmas #2 also features the work of Edwin Vazkez, Ron P.D. Brandt, Sarah Glidden, as well as many other fine cartoonists. The theme that Brandon gave us to work from was 'Nowhere to go but up', and this was my very loose interpretation...



I only have a few copies for myself, but if your interested in getting a copy of Ditmas#2, send me an email, and I'll let Brandon know.

Wow TOM!! This is really great! I love how you used the grey scale to color it. Also your story telling is great and has a very unique perspective..last lines are always me favorite(when done well). Your last line is perfect. Please make another one!!

i've already told you how much i like this - but for the record here, it's really a great job. i wish more comics looked like this, i'd probably buy more if they did.

agreed with steph-o, last lines when done well, are priceless.

Just for the record, I too will tell you again that I loved this piece. I think it's your best effort yet, at least in terms of storytelling.

Thanks
