I am FAKE SHANE


I wound up drawing this after spending too much time looking at Shane Glines' stuff at his CARTOON RETRO site. Shamelss, yes, and I could never draw like Shane, but when you get inspired, ya just gotta go with whatever vibe got ya there.

By the way, you can now buy Shane's new self-published magnum opus, S CURVES: The Art of Shane Glines at Lulu.com; 400 pages of color hard-cover goodness! Also available from Lulu is Shane's LILLY & FLINCH Sketchbook. Two batches of Shane's amazing illustrations? You know ya gotta have 'em.

(There; Maybe that plug'll make up for me biting Shane's style)

nothing wrong with a little inspiration- especially when it results in a fine drawing like this.

You have a real skill for shapes.

Shane has so many good ingredients in his style of work. It's hard not to be inspired.There's some Timm, Hank Ketchum, a little Dan DeCarlo probably some Cole and countless others. I hope his book sells well.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't inspired by Shane. He is a master at his craft. I really like your piece. I can see the Shane influence but only becuase you pointed it out. LEZZZZZZ see some more!!!

Big fan, man... Shane-ish piece or not. :)
... Besides, Mr. Glines rules, and i think he leaves his mark on ALL of our brains!... That guy is TOO good!
Great drawing, as usual.
