Modesty Blaise


I love the Modesty Blaise strips. O'Donnell and Holdaway crafted such a fun world and character with their strip. Holdaway, especially, has been a big influence on me and where I'm going with some of my brush/line work these days. It's probably not evident, but around the time I really started studying what he was doing along with taking another look at Seinkewicz, Alex Raymond and the like, I really started to open up my brush and line work into what you all have been seeing recently.

Anyway, this isn't your typical MB piece, but these are the moments I love the best in any story.
