Tom Morrow: What's the Deal with His Head?
I don't get it. He's got this taut, muscular body but his head is huge and infantile, with a bulbous forehead and a pug nose and pert little lips. (And yet his hair is receding at a rapid pace.) Is he a mutant? Or Irish? Is it just because he's from the future? Because that Cindia person looks just like him! Are they related? Am I reading too much into this? Does the artist merely draw everybody like that, with regular-shaped bodies and gigantic noggins? Igor Kordley did. So did Dan Spiegel and Mike Hoffman and Ernie Colon! *awaits rash of hate mail for besmirching the good name of these fine gentlemen* Fine! Bring it! See if I care!
...I'm sorry. I'm getting testy again. Where is Weight Wizard with my coffee? And of course I think all of those artists I mentioned are very talented; it's just that sometimes they drew people with really big heads.
Hmm. Maybe if I Google "Tom Morrow", that will explain everything. *taps furiously on keyboard*
And don't even get me started on Cindia.
