The first drawing of 2003. This is a perfect example of how a concept will mutate during the journey from grey matter to ink -- the image that ended up on paper is almost nothing at all like the image that had originally formed in my head. In fact, the drawing was going so badly at one point that I considered abandoning it. The title is taken from a lyric from the Babyland song "Nowadays."
