Building Snowmen

As a side project DR Hunt and I are experimenting with hybridizing our work - her color sensibilities and use of media like watercolor wash and pencil is sublime, and so far above and beyond my crayola paint-bucket approach that it really transforms even a simple doodle into something entirely new and wonderful. Collaborative efforts are often a unique aspect of comics which is a potential avenue worth exploring for any artist, whether it's any combination along the creative continuum: concept, writing, penciling, inking, coloring etc. (as an example, the above image was from one of my sketches). Finding a balance in the synthesis is an awful lot like building a snowman, in that sometimes learning to play with others is almost just as much fun as it is working solo.
