I'm a writer. I read a lot of comics. My friend Jojo is an artist. She doesn't read any comics.

At lunch, she draws super heroes from memory. Her memory is not always very good.

As you look at these drawings, I can not stress enough that Jojo is a professional artist, and a full grown woman. It's important to remember that.

Today Jojo draws The Comedian.
Watchmen week continues, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results so far.
This drawing is much closer than yesterday’s. She got the attitude, the guns, the suspender-y things. She gave him camo pants, which he doesn’t have, but he does spend time in the military, so that’s an easy mistake. She also left off his mask and mustache but I’ll allow it, since she remembered his cigar. I especially like that he’s not aiming his guns at anything, just happily showing them to us. He’s so proud of his guns.
I was very impressed that she remembered to give him his smiley face button. When I pointed this out, she said, “Well yeah I remember, it’s on the first page.”
To which I said, “Sure but Silk Spectre was on lots of pages and you still drew her like a pouty 80s dancer.

    I also like how he looks like the British version of Dennis the Menace, as if portrayed in some imaginary live-action...
