The first comic book that Jeffrey fell in love with was Rom # 7, back in 1979... As Jeff credits Rom with initially inspiring his love of comic books and of drawing, Jeff instituted a personal tradition in 1994 that every sketchbook he keeps must begin with a drawing of him and Rom together. Here's twenty of these sketchbook pages from over the past few years.
