I found this last night digging through a box of old photos. It's a rejection letter from 2000ad's Art Director Robin Smith, around the early / mid 1980s I think. It's so sweet I just had to scan it in.
I'd drawn a really, really bad Judge Dredd strip (that I'd also written myself), aged about 12 or 13 (I can't remember), that I sent in, hoping to get it printed in the comic. They must have had a good laugh at it in Kings Reach Tower, and were probably inundated with dreadful submissions at the time, so it really meant a lot to me that Robin took the time to write me a lovely, encouraging letter like this.
(Sadly my figures are still rubbish, and my drawings are still very scratchy. Ho hum.)

Hey Ste don't feel so down in the dumps about it. Drawing is a skill and it takes time to mature. In fact I believe I draw waaay more than you did. And I will admit some look very crappy compared to my other ones. I too have made lots of Comics but never published them. I do plan on drawing Anime Manga style art but it is not there yet. But as an Artist and a future game developer I truly admire your work. Just wish you guys would finish most of your games and that they would fetch a little more attention. Look forward to seeing more of your artwork. Sincerely Mr.Polygon
