About a month ago, the inimitable @unklerupert & me ran a poll of your favorite comic artists and created a really quite extraordinary list of comic art talent. I promised that the top 3 in the poll would be commissioned to do 1 page of art each for a
secret project! That project was a test I wanted to run on the comic making process. How its done, how fast things happen, how much things cost... the works!
Its been a fascinating experience, and in my opinion, a huge success.
What it has also done is given me the confidence
to move forward with turning the third part of my Moon/Mute/(not publicly named film) anthology, into a graphic novel. Having now experienced & worked with different artist, & seeing how they interpret things, I'm going to do the book with not one, but a "dream-team"
of different people! Still, my limited experience even after the poll, has given me the wisdom to know that to do this right, I should team up with an experienced comic creator. Someone with real chops making graphic novels. I'll introduce that person soon.
In the meantime, the poll introduced me to 3 wonderful artists and allowed me to work with one I knew from the past. The three artists who were new to me were @ColleenDoran @heythisisangle & @erdna11. The old pal was @pauljholden. Over the next few days, I wanted to show you
their work...
First up, @pauljholden's piece. Our heroes on their way to work on the London tube.
Next up, this beautiful page by @heythisisangle. Our lease protagonist, (done in a very different style from @pauljholden 's,) negotiating a job at a BBQ joint in London.
Next up, this beautiful page by @heythisisangle. Our lead protagonist, (done in a very different style from @pauljholden's,) negotiating a job at a BBQ joint in London.
Lastly for today, I'll leave you with @erdna11's gorgeous grey-shaded b&w piece from a little later in the story.
As you can see, very different art styles, and different takes. The fun bit now is working out a common language for the artists of who the characters are and what makes them recognizable as the same individuals as we go from one artist to the next within the story...
Ill be putting up @ColleenDoran's stunning page soon, and telling you a bit more about what happens next.
