"Beta" A Parker Brand Micro-Sketch

Saw a pretty messed up wreck on my way back from Lake Charles today. I'm not sure what the mangled diesel truck ran into, but whatever it was stopped it in its tracks. Now, not to make light of the situation, but after my first thought (man, I hope no one was hurt), my second thought was, "looks like Beta Ray Bill landed in the middle of the highway." Yeah,... nerd. Anyway, that was the inspiration for this micro-sketch. If you don't know who Beta Ray Bill is, then go find out (chances are, if you're on this blog, then you know exactly who he his). This sketch took about 20 minutes. I used a Ticonderoga #2 pencil for the breakdown, outlined it with a Pitt Fine-Tip Art Pen, put my Pentel Pocket Brush to work on the heavy inking & rendering, and added some grey with a Pitt Cool Grey Brush Tip Pen. Fun little sketch, today. Good energy... or lightning... or whatever.
