I wanted to capture that aspect of him, but also the sadness associated with the character. And as good as Alec Holland/Swamp Thing is, his life is so full of tragedy. Being the avatar of the Green and it's champion, is not a walk in the park. Some would say it's not easy being green. Heyo! *rimshot*
Seriously though, I love this character and you should go out and pick up Alan Moore's run on the book. It's over 30 years old and still holds up. Snyder's (and artist Yanick Paquette) run was fantastic as well and reignited my love for Swamp Thing. Even though they wrapped up their run on the book, the job that Charles Soule and Kano are doing now is continuing with fine work. I can't recommend these stories enough. I love this green monster with a heart of gold and you can find my rendition of him up in my store. If no one buys it, I'll be happy because this is by far my favorite piece from The 25, bar none.
Thanks for reading!
