Straight Pen, one shot sketch from 7-27-07. Late, late night sketch when I was feeling like adding quite a bit of unneccesary extensions in my style. I have often felt that it is far easier to make a complex piece look good, then a simple piece look correct. It's just my opinion but in all my years of writing, I have come full circle to the point where adding unneccesary extensions (bells and whistles) only trick the mind into thinking the piece is more complex, when in reality, it's just busier. (I'm referring to my pieces). I do like all styles though, simple and complex and it's really amazing to me that there truly are masters of all the different styles out there and a well rounded writer can pretty much do more then one. As for what I personally like with my own pieces, sometimes I've found, less is more and a good old fashioned simple bar style piece, can burn over an all out piece.
