Fair Fight

A Fair Fight was my introduction to the iconic art of Alex Sheikman. I wanted to catch his attention, so I took his dialogue-free finished art and wrote my own story into it. I’m pretty sure this version subverts the initial plot a little, but I’m more interested in what happens to semi-clad barbarians after the cleaving is done.

He liked it enough that we went on to collaborate on Kristo!
