Tying it together. Inks are done now; the whole drawing is about 20 by 30 inches. Tried to push the linework in the foreground to make it bolder and more foreground-ish, and I think it reads the way I want it to.

I looked real hard for a large-format flat scanner in NYC and can’t find one that will cost me less than $100 to have this scanned, so I’m going to scan it in several parts and stitch together myself. Colors are the next big step! I have some ideas but might do some quick mockups to see what looks right.

Finished or almost-finished pencils for the screenprinted poster set by Becky and I!

Working big and detailed tightened up some bits from the preliminary drafts: Becky’s monster’s arrow-horns are now antlers, and the heads are more wolf-like and less abstract. I love it! I got kind of carried away with the feathers and floral details, but it’s looking appropriately weird I think. I penciled this thing at Carmine Street Comics recently; here’s a process post.

We’re talking to printers and working out a gameplan to get these things made. Got a good bit of drawing left to do, though. Inks next!

To be sure, the broad river now cut them off from this beautiful land. But the raft was nearly done, and after the Tin Woodman had cut a few more logs and fastened them together with wooden pins, they were ready to start.
The Chapter 8 intro illustration is finished! I’m going slightly out of order because the starting points for 7 and 9 are kind of bland, and I need to figure out something to say with those illustrations in the meantime. I’ve been swamped and chipping away at this one for a while; it’s a relief to finally move forward on this project again.
This is the first full-page we’ve seen of the whole group together!!

back on this, finally.
