Since I was talking smack about Grant Morrison’s collaborators, I thought I’d put my money where my mouth was and look after I leapt (or something like that.) Below is an image by (and presumably copyright by) Steve Yeowell from Invisibles #22.

And here is an abstraction I drew based on that image:

I think we can all agree that at least one of these images is lousy.

Incidentally, the text on mine says, “I am 40 pounds tall,” which is something my son said the other day. I’m thinking about doing a series (maybe 4 or 5) of abstractions based on comics from my youth, with pithy sayings from my son added. If this thing is your cup of tea, you can see a much longer similar series I did here
