In this great peek behind-the-pages of the newly released "Justice League" #12 (a.k.a. the one where Supes and Wonder Woman get. it. on.) artist Jim Lee explains how he laid out the pivotal New 52 kissy-kissy moment from his drawing desk at 5:30am. This clip is intriguing for a lot of reasons--first off, we get to see an iconic comic artist at work, second, Lee philosophizes about the creative potential of the human mind in the super-late/way-early hours of the day, and it's a cool bit of info.
I think during the day, as animals, we're really programmed to go out and hunt and kill or be killed...you're senses are on alert, you're always aware of your surroundings...at night, your body kind of shuts down, it's typically when you sleep or dream...I think your brain is more open to emotion and internal thought and a lot of times when you're drawing I think those are the kinds of things you want coursing through your body, through your brain, as you try to convey some kind of emotion behind the art your creating.
Kill or be killed, eh? What are those DC offices like?
