Title and End Pages


Working with the idea of the larger perspective pieces featured earlier on the blog, I wanted to continue this idea of nature and mechanics.  Trying to figure out how to do this, I looked at the vein and artery systems of the body, using some references (and artistic license) I mapped each, represented by pipes and tree branches.

The pipe piece will be the front cover of the comic. I’m keeping it simple for people to focus on the smaller details, rather than getting lost in a overly detailed background. The tree piece will serve as the back cover, continuing the minimal theme, but showing the progress in the book as the woman finds herself introduced back into nature from the sterile city she has lived in for her whole life.

Dystopia vs Utopia


Also, some extras. Perspective is something that’s been a real Achilles heel of mine, but these turned out a lot better than I could have hoped!

Both were produced with fineliners, copic markers, and a lot of eraser marks!

Dystopia: 21 – end


That’s it so far! Eventually this may be released as a limited edition mini comic with high quality prints, as soon as the front and back cover are completed.

Dystopia: 16 – 20


Dystopia: 16-20

Dystopia: 11 – 15


Dystopia: Pages 11-15. A transition was needed from inside a cold, metallic city to the vibrance of unhindered nature. Watercolours are a particularly vibrant and sometimes uncontrollable medium, especially whilst also using powedered inks. The effects however came out really well with  a lot of depth and movement, which also carries on with the water.

Dystopia: 6-10


Pages 6 – 10 for Dystopia

Dystopia: A Mini-comic, pages 1-5


A personal project I am currently working on. The idea of a  mute comic has always been interesting due to the fact that the story relies entirely on the pictures given and the viewers imagination. Although there may be a narrative running through it, the real enjoyment personally is to see what people will take from simple images.

These are the first five pages produced.

This is the middle of the story, the main piece. I know, a little Star Wars, starting from the middle then darting in all directions. However I feel this is strong enough to stand on its own and to establish itself.
