Here is the coloured version of "Still Life With Dropped Mop". I had tried to match the colours with the original story but that was almost 30 years ago and all I have is the printed copy in Epic Illustrated.
Even back then I regretted doing the purple upolstry and now I felt compelled to keep it consistent. John, who commissioned the piece, has the original of the first page and we wanted this to be a companion piece.
I had a lot of difficulty with this piece. I'm not sure why. It might have something to do with working on a piece that was based on the very first Cerebus story I'd done. Maybe it was just the weight of those 30 years. What a long, strange trip it's been.
