Tom Preston is a traditional art illustrator. Even though it is a comic, it has no lines between the panels and no borders. This piece is cool because only the creative ideas and emotions are colored and everything else is black and white. I also like the use of hatching and cross-hatching for the shadows. Tom likes to draw things and emotions that he has experiences and try to make it repeatable to others. In this piece he takes the idea of an artists' creative ideas that he wants to put on a canvas from his head. The ideas are bright colors and cute fun things. However, it doesn't come out the way he wants it and becomes depressed. That is why he is crouched down at the end and a depressing blue gloom is over him.
