John Byrne's art both prompted me to draw as a kid, and dissuade me from trying to do it professionally because I could never be that good.

That makes me sad. I knew I could never be as good as Neal Adams or Joe Kubert or Frank Bellamy -- but here I am!

No pressure, but I suspect Absorbing Man is going to look amazing when he's inked.

Just been consuming this piece again with my eyes, and it's so much fun. I can almost hear sound effects!

Wonderful to see, JB!  Brings a bit of additional joy to the start of my week.

Dying to see the finished product.

I am so happy to see the commissions starting again. Is
it just to clean what is already scheduled or should I
contact Jim for a possible one?

And I am going to echo with everybody else. It is a nice
piece in the making. Looking forward to the finished
version.

Let me make sure there isn't a burr under my saddle!

Hope springs eternal that I'll be able to get a commission someday (he said selfishly).

Nice! 

I've been waiting for a commission to pop up for awhile! I haven't contacted Jim since I remember reading to not to do so.  Hope more commissions start coming out, as I've had an idea for my 6th JB commission for quite some time. 

Either way, can't wait to see the finished product.

Ok, I didn't know that expression. I had to look at it
online.

Learning new stuff everyday !

I knew I felt a ripple in the cosmos.  Great to see you inspired again and sharing your work, as deserved as your "unemployment" is/was......

JB, what is the longest break you've taken from the drawing board?
Seeing pieces like this reminds me why I fell in love with comics.

This is fantastic, JB - seeing this and the X-Men pencils in the last few weeks has been an absolute joy for me.

With this break, did anything surprise you? 
Was it hard being away?

Drawing the Avengers as your first piece back just feels right.

A D'OH! moment.

Jim Warden came by this past weekend, and reported that he'd totally forgotten this was one I'd already done. Well, I'd forgotten, too!

So feeling guilty about not finishing this while working on the X-Pencils was a waste of energy!!

Don't know. Jim is sure he could find a customer if I did!
