'You know... my hair just dries this way'

Hey-hey. Gonna slap up a quickie this week, cos I'm lazy. I don't know that I've ever been truly inspired one way or the other by a Thompson drawing before, certainly by a Thompson flatulent release(inspired to leave the room, vomit-fans), or a Thompson movie-review(don't get me started...), but maybe not a drawing.
Til now.
His (rather good)30 Rock character studies from the other day made me wanna try my own hand at Jack Donaghy, surely the greatest comedy creation currently gracing the small screen.
So I did. It looks... ok. I lashed it out as a warm-up on one of the pages of script for my new Angel book. Also on show here are a couple of breakdowns for some pages. They are incredibly loose, this is how I usually operate, just jot the simple layouts right down onto the script as I go. I rarely change them. If I have any sort of 'process', I guess this is it.
Truly impressive, no? No.
See, anybody CAN be a comicbook artist.
