While next week marks the end of the latest story a typical day of work at ACME Logic for Niall Keating. Above is the development of the hazmat gear the “team” needed to get through this predicament.  I fretted about how my designs seem to resemble too close to characters Robot (Invincible), Mr. Freeze (The Batman Animated Series). Luckily this dilemma took place during #SketchBomb-NC session so with the proverbial slap upside the head I got back to work. Tough love, gotta love it 🙂
