I agree and speaking as an artist myself, these have no heart put into them. Draw cause you love it not cause it pays.

I agree with you both. Mediocre covers. The popularity of Geoff Senior's work demonstrates you don't need heart--or even talent--for these to sell, however.

And I agree with everyone else. What's the appeal here?

WOW. That's quite the assumption there, sir.

I think this is just you not liking something or just not finding these particular works interesting on a personal level, and not about whether or not Alex is putting "heart" into these.
I color comics because I love it AND because it pays. Same could be said for Alex, same could be said for anyone; and in some cases we'll do it for even do it for WAY less pay or even for free, despite bills or rent or whatever.

Also, I find the "Draw cause you love it, not cause it pays" phrase to be a "trap". It's almost like saying "if you admit to getting paid to do something you love, then you're just in it for the pay." Or pretty much hinting that if you want to make money doing something you're particularly skilled at(that you have a huge passion for), that you're only in it for the money, and not because you just want to find a way to merge doing something you love with being able to pay bills/not be homeless.

Really? I love Geoff Senior's work and I definitely think it has heart AND talent. But that's just me, I guess.

I've warmed up to Alex Milne a lot recently due to MTMTE, but these aren't doing anything for me. Nothing wrong with them, just, not my thing.

I'm sure in the bright and fluffy world of imagination land this rings true, but in real life where the economy is hard and there's bills to pay, that's a recipe for failure. These days any gig that pays is worth doing.

Idealy one would draw because it both pays and brings them joy.

No kidding.
