I am hunting for some retro games in the junk store.

This is a concept drawing. I am using it to test a few different inking methods, and colour palettes. I have been writing the story and making art tests in tandem.

The left side is my ‘first draft’, ie. all the notes, memos, sketches and tests I have captured in the last 18 months. On the right side is enough blank paper for the final draft of the first 20 pages, which I hope to finish by the end of the year.

I am writing and drawing a 240 page graphic novel. It is taking a long time. Starting in autumn I hope to post weekly reports of my progress (and photos).
