Absolutely! There are some guys that do incredibly beautiful, slick art - but I think there's too much of it, and the general fashion seems to be to go that route... I like me some McKean and Sienkiewicz texture!
I tend to agree with you. I admire the technical skill and there are works of very slick art that I enjoy. But McKean is such an influential artist and one of the reasons I got into comics I didn't know you wrote a Dead Space novel btw. Wow!
Thank you! You read it? Always wonderful to hear from people who read my novel! I have another one out from PS Publishing later in the year with an introduction by China Miéville! It's called Paradise Rex Press, Inc. A VERY different affair!
