Facing The Deadline


My proposed piece, “Facing the Deadline,” humorously explores the theme of the show, In the Beginning, by depicting the generation of ideas for a sequential art project.

Inspired by the style of Robert Crumb and Art Spiegelman, “Facing the Deadline” graphically illustrates the plight of a professional comic artist in the throes of writer’s block.

In this humorous exploration of the creative process, the fictional featured artist is menaced by a personification of his impending deadline.

Things take a turn for the worse when our procrastinating protagonist makes a Faustian pact with supernatural evil, in order to alleviate his plight.
