Mr Black, Mr White, encore!

H ere's another stage-by -stage image. In 2001 Beaux Arts magazine in Paris wanted a drawing of Alan Moore in the same way the Face in London wanted one of Johnny Depp, that is, in the 'From Hell style'. I used a photo of him I'd taken the previous year, from the 1999 session of Stanley Black meets Norman White,

during which Mr White was innately incapable of holding a grim face for two pictures in a row.

A clipped version of the photo went go to the Onion for their interview with Alan, the ink drawing went to Beaux Arts

and I saved a scan of the pencil stage to show in Bacchus #59.

Nothing ever went to waste at Eddie Campbell Comics.


Chris Wisnia cracks me up.

Did you ever see this spoof of From Hell by Chris Reilly?

The man looks like he's gone through hell and hasn't quite been back.
Although I must say he looks far better in your drawings (with a preference for the Bacchus version).

And I swear, whoever is thinking those word recognition thingies must be a minion of Cthulhu.

Lacks something.

Probably a portrait of Mr Edward Campbell Esq., in similar style...

He's good at scowling is our Alan.

Have been trying to resist the urge to draw a "grumble" balloon above his head...
Redundant that would be.

This is a nice little bit of Co-Incidence; re-reading Promethea and the collected A Disease of Language.

Thanks much.
