"The sensation of writing a book is the sensation of spinning, blinded by love and daring… . At its best, the sensation of writing is that of any unmerited grace. It is handed to you, but only if you look for it. You search, you break your heart, your back, your brain, and then — and only then — it is handed to you."

It’s Fantastic Faux Week!
This Wednesday my next fill-in issue of FF (#9) will be hitting the stands. I thought I’d tease some artwork from the issue throughout the week. Above are the inks from three random pages. More to come tomorrow! Enjoy!

Here’s the original concept sketch for Wonder Woman by H.G. Peter (circa 1941), including handwritten notes between the artist and writer William Moulton Marston:
- "Dear Dr. Marston, I slapped these two out in a hurry. The eagle is tough to handle - when in perspective or in profile, he doesn’t show up clearly — the shoes look like a stenographer’s. I think the idea might be incorporated as a sort of Roman contraption. Peter"
- "Dear Pete - I think the gal with hand up is very cute. I like her skirt, legs, hair. Bracelets okay + boots. These probably will work out. See other suggestions enclosed. No on these + stripes - red + white. With eagle’s wings above or below breasts as per enclosed? Leave it to you. Don’t we have to put a red stripe around her waist as belt? I thought Gaines wanted it - don’t remember. Circlet will have to go higher - more like crown - see suggestions enclosed. See you Wednesday morning - WMM.”
The original drawing sold for $33,350 in 2002.
