notes from the gutters…

Another page I'm working on. On the left is the page as I scanned it, on the right I've increased the margins a bit. The biggest complaint about my “artwork” is how claustrophobic it is, seriously, every review ever, after they describe vividly how scratchy and shitty my drawing is, they mention this word claustrophobic. Could it be as simple as adding wider gutters?? Or keep it real/claustrophobic? What do people think of this?

I like the claustrophobic better.

Funny, I too have a scratchy style to my drawings (neither yours nor mine though, are 'shitty')
I digress, I don't think the more narrow gutters make for a claustrophobic appearance. I'm not sure where critics of your work are getting that sense. Have you tried asking them? ☺
