Back a long time a go when I still bought comics books I tried to collect everything I could drawn by Tim Vigil, even though I often found some of it a little too extreme in content for me. Not that I so easily offended but yea I can be if it seems gratuitous and for no other purpose than low brow shock value. By this time in life I had mostly stopped reading comics and bought them just for the art. I did not care for the story lines of some of his stuff, like Faust, but loved the meticulous and painstaking black & white drawings. This are later drawings and reflect what I think is best in Vigil's work. A rare eye for exquisite detail and drawing that seems to lack any Photoshopping. If there is digital enhancement, and there usually is anymore, I cannot detect it. The themes are are mostly vampire women in some sort of almost Hammeresque setting. Hard to go wrong with that as subject matter.

If you have something supportive and cool to say share it and thanks in advance. And if you some sort of weird insult or put down you want to toss at me share it too. But I won't publish it because I have that power mortal.
