Original Artwork

I thought you might be interested to see an original artwork. This shows how much I add on computer. The frames, speech bubbles, text and obviously the color are all done in Photoshop. Even my signature is added later. I draw backgrounds separately and add them later too. So my originals all look a bit strange and empty.

Call that an original? Where's the pencil marks, the tippex, the coffee stains? Large grayscale image, please!

Sorry Alex, my artworks are obsessively neat and tidy. People often say they are prints not originals.
No pencil (I use a lightbox to trace onto Bristol Board).
No coffee (I do my artworks in the evening long after my last coffee).
No tipex 'cos I clean any blemishes in Photoshop.
No large greyscale image 'cos it will only prove how OCD I am.

Do you think I should loosen up?
