Here's a sketch of the protagonists of the 1990s DC book I worked on, Gross Point. (Brian and Teri, was it? I think those were their names.) I remember thinking at the time that drawing a monthly book meant that I'd finally "Broken In" (capitals and all) and how this would be my professional life from now on.
How I laughed about that a couple of years later, when nobody would answer my calls.
