I reached page 26 in my pencils the other day and decided to go back and consolidate my progress so far. I draw pretty much every day now and am improving all the time, finding better ways of doing things. I'm getting to know the lead characters better and the ship too, so it's evolved. It feels like the lens on the camera in my head has been focusing, and just recently I got the Longship in sharp relief. I found that in order to draw 52 pages of story I can't be colouring every page like a painting before its all finished so I have temporarily done away with colour. It is quite refreshing to be working in black and white, it makes it easier to concentrate on the forms and proportions.
So if you'd like to see, I have updated the 6 page preview. The link is just here.
Mysteries. Time-travel. That same green car. This is Loughborough Junction in July 2008. What were we all doing there? Something to do with a courier flight to Tokyo.
It's an image poem inspired by Yeats Long Legged Fly, and I actually like it very much. Sadly I can't publish it on the web due to the Yeats estate reserving the rights on that particular poem, but perhaps one day it'll be allowed out. You'll note that I contacted them to ask permission and was a bit disappointed.
