John Byrne Draws...
A normal day in the life of John Byrne. How do you spend yours?
When asked what his normal day is like, John had this to say on his forum:

The alarm goes off at seven and I start up town…
Well, no, not really. I stopped using an alarm clock years ago. My internal clock seems more or less permanently set to wake me between 5:30 and 6. I get up, let the dog out (when I have one), feed the dog, get myself an apple or a banana, and head downstairs to the Studio.
An hour or so at the computer, first, and hit the drawingboard usually by 8. Work until around 11 — roughly 2 pages of layouts and the first “layer” of inks — then have lunch, usually a mug of soup.
Back to the board at 1, remaining inks on those two pages. Finish around 4 on most days.
Occasional trips to the Forum pepper the day.
Weekends, pretty much the same, except I work on commissions.
Most evenings are spent vegetating in front of the TV. There are flurries of social activity — plays, movies, parties, dinners — but for some reason those tend to clump together, so I’ll have a busy couple of weeks, then nothing for a few months, then back into the cycle.

    This is a good photo of JB in the studio, but the angle doesn’t show his wall of amazing original Kirby and Wood art....
