Previously on my Blog I mentioned I had been speaking to a couple of well known people I dont think they would mind me saying who they are Comics Great J. Bone and friend Christopher Downes have both been getting a sneek peak on my first Graphic Novel project 'Lord Fancy'. The feedback has been to put it mildly, Overwhelmingly Positive.With even threats of "If you don't finish this I'm gonna be on your Back!!" haha These guys are really cool and I appreciate them mulling over my stuff when they have their true works of art to do. I'm extremely humbled by them donating their Generous time for someone like me.
So I'm still writing it, The Intro pages are sitting on the done pile while the rest well....... sometimes an idea comes out of the blue and I must draw it down which may not be used but it may later lead to other ideas 1000 times better in a week. This is the process I am currently working with and it is really getting the best possible results. While giving the reader an Original Adventure to enjoy. As I've learnt Stories Evolve and this has taken more than a year in the background of my life (along with Red Licorice) with last minute changes that have changed the entire dynamic of the book and I'm really enjoying it. I wish I could do this for a living I know I always love Brainstorming sessions. I really hope to get the chance to do so in a Professional Capacity at some stage.
I am currently taking notes as well as pictures of the creative process' and hope that once the book is done I will begin to share these experiences more fully and hope that you enjoy them too.
I got to meet Colin Baker and John Leeson over the past weekend both known for classic Doctor Who. They were a joy to listen too I even asked questions which are so geeky in nature I should be ashamed but I'm not. Next Weekend I hope to have another encounter with someone famous and that because of my art have been very fortunate to call a friend.
Until then I'll keep working hard and try and make the best experience possible for me and the reader.
