Goodbye, Joe...

Goodbye, Joe...

I found out by a random posting a fan put in my facebook page that Joe Kubert had died

 

I sat, stunned, on my couch for a minute staring blankly at my phone. I had to run upstairs and hide so that I could have a moment to shed some tears. It was such a shock. I know he was 85, but he always seemed so strong and lively. I guess I never imagined a world without him.

 

For those of you who do not recognize the name, I strongly urge you to ...

Just Hatched

Posted by artbyanastasia on April 23, 2012 at 11:10 PM Comments comments (0)

I plan on showcasing one of my artworks or photos every now and again with some back story and descriptions. There is a story behind almost every piece of art and a great many of my photographs that never really gets shared and I think that some people may find them interesting.

 

"Just Hatched" is an image I had bouncing around in my head for YEARS. I could never really pin it down or get it out on paper until a contest came about that forced me to finally sort it out. I was...
