Earlier in the year I reached out to the folks over at FarFaria about drawing a story for their children’s app. They were more than happy to let me do so, and we started down a path that led to a story called The Magician’s Assistant. We felt this was a great story that matched my style, and I was very eager to get started on it. We went back and forth for awhile figuring out the character designs and set designs. Once we had that locked down it was all hands on deck as I started working up the pages.
It took me quite some time to get his story together, as I did all the work myself. That includes character / set design, layouts, pencils, inks and colors! Whew! It was a great experience tho, and I learned a lot from the process. It was also a great reminder of how fun it is to tell stories. I really enjoy trying to figure out camera shots, action scenes, and the flow of the story overall. It’s something that I put to use in storyboards and animation work as well but the vibe is slightly different for me in story / comic form.
