Sneak Peek-Comic Anthology


Here is the first page for the 10 page story I am doing for our 12-Way with Cheese comic anthology. It is very different from what I usually do. I have had this story idea for years but the art approach did not work because it was not cartoony enough. I scrapped all of my initial concept art and redesigned all the characters.
Below is a worksheet for the characters. They are literally "star shaped" people. I will post more pages as I finish.

  3. I'll be the third to praise the color in this, especially the way the golden light starts to penetrate the blue background —very nice, Christina! Thanks also for showing sketches. I always love to see them!

    I'm not asking you to blow surprises, but is this going to be a kid's story, or an adult/all-ages story made to look like a fairy-tale?

  4. This story is kid safe. The book has a lot of non-kid safe stuff though. I am using it to put together a proposal for a kids graphic novel-this is chapter one.

    Glad everyone likes it so far-still deciding on final details.

  5. Beautiful.

    And we've sure got variety in this book. I wonder who our readers will be?

  6. Thanks Brian! Every anthology I have ever read varies wildly in content, so 12-way will fit right in!
