Over the weekend at HeroesCon it was my distinct pleasure to be seated next to Dash Shaw (Goddess Head, and the forthcoming Mothers Mouth). Of the many things we chatted about, one was our mutual love of David Lynch's DUNE (Frank Herbert had a little to do with it as well). Dash, my girlfriend Michelle, and I seemingly could yammer on forever about Dune , so it was a delightful surprise when he cooked up this sketch that summarized the whole convoluted story in a single page. Given that he had no photo ref to work from I think that actually does look a little like a Fred Hembeck version of Kyle Maclachlan. It's amazing how real artists can somehow find the key features in a face to make it resemble their subject.
Anyway, THE SPICE MUST FLOW!
