It was the early '90s, and I was working as an artist producing yellow page ads for Pacific Bell. Because it was rather tedious work, and I entertained the idea of possibly breaking into the comic book industry, as I had wanted to do when I was younger. I didn't have any samples of recent comic book art that I had done, so I came upon the idea of drawing a sixteen page story to show what I could do. Writing is not my strong suit, so I decided to try to tell the story with no dialog or narration whatsoever. After all, isn't that the definition of a good comic book artist? My idea was to have parallel stories, one told of a distant past, and one in present day. I know that dinosaurs didn't exist at the same time as humans, but I really like dinosaurs, and I wanted them in the story. Well, after I left my job producing yellow pages, I started my own business doing computer graphics, so I never did get to bust into the comic book field. My story collected dust. When I decided to put up my own web page, my girl friend told me she would really like it if I included my comic book story...so here it is. Looking back, I'm not too happy with the art, but I've seen worse. I still think the story is easy to follow, but I'm so close to the project that it's really hard to know for sure. And now, I hope you enjoy SHELTER.
