What do do here? Wish I had or could say more about this project. I’ll be spending the next week trying to iron out exactly what I want it to be(what format…etc). More to come I suppose. Project KE may have wings yet!
This will most likely be the final post of 2012. Oh well, right? I feel as though this year has been a year of developing projects and working out all the nuts and bolts to a few things that could be pretty good. This is the latest sampling of that. I’ve plucked a Public Domain superhero from 1942 off of the pile and am developing him with a new origin story.
The original story has our hero killed by a German U-Boat while fishing with his grandfather. Once he dies, he is then given his specific powers and returns to Earth. My story will take a slightly different start. The hero’s origin will start as a prisoner in KZ Dachau. I’m starting here because a few years back, I visited Dachau and have always wanted to use that experience in my work. I believe this is a perfect way to do so.
Also–the protagonist will be a self portrait. This is the only way I can be a super hero, an artist as well as a complete narcissist, all at the same time. Happy hunting!
I was asked by my good pal Dusty Shaffer to make some art. Well…I like doing that so here we go. Dusty is also in faculty at FSU and is directing/conceiving a production of Angels In America. My part was to come up with pen and ink images that will be projected on stage during the performances. These images are strange to say a word about them. I tried to draw imagery rather than just scenes. I hope they work well for what Dusty and the whole crew are trying to do with the production. Best luck to all–show opens October 5th at the Frostburg State University Performing Arts Center. Now…back to drawing and writing like us authors tend to do.
While I should have been finishing the inks for my contribution to the FSU production of Angels In America–I decided to finish this piece instead. Now back to the Angels work as my deadline is looming. Gonna make a big push to get this project underway soon. This page is about 8″x10″ and takes place in Chapter 3. The difference in this on compared to the rest of the concept work I’ve been doing for this story is the outline. I used a brush pen for this piece to get a nice thick outline…just something new but I think I like it better.
Also–becoming a big fan of Copic ink pens.
