Page Notes
Originally published as "What the Hell" on 9/21/2010
SO. MUCH. FUN. TO. DRAW. Seriously. The map of hell took awhile, and I owe the look (and many other things) to my father’s “doodles”. He did them all his adult life, and I grew up with these wonderful geometric patterns lying around all over the place. He mostly drew them during meetings (he was an early programmer, and enjoyed sitting through meetings as much as most of them). One of his bosses joked that they were worth thousands of dollars, just adding up his hourly rate. I always loved them, and while I never made them as beautifully as he did, I worked on them most of my life. He showed me how he set them up, and I would practice and practice. After I had been drawing Lacrymer for awhile, Daddy said he’d started doing more wood-block-y versions, more like mine. A nice back and forth. I wish so much he was still alive to talk about art and comics with me.
About the Author
Molly Demeter Sokolow Hayden (or Modemeter, for obvious reasons of length) grew up surrounded by her father’s comic book collection, sometimes literally. She fell in love with Will Eisner’s Spirit at an inappropriately young age and wishes she could draw like Jaime Hernandez. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband, her daughter, and her cat, and sneaks down to her drawing table whenever she can.
