Woohoo! I can finally show a peek at the art we've been working on for the Ratha's Creature graphic novel.
This panel started as an original storyboard by author Clare Bell ~rathacat
. Tod Wills did the layout, inking and coloring. I penciled the characters (with lots of input and help from Lew Lashmit *viergacht
), and Sheila Ruth did the lettering. All five of us worked on character design. Based on a scene in the first chapter of Ratha's Creature by Clare Bell.
Working with this team on a beloved story has been incredible - we're all learning so much from each other. Between Clare Bell's moving narrative, Lew's gorgeous full-page art, and Tod's luscious watercolors, I think the finished graphic novel could be amazing.
If you like this, please pledge on Kickstarter so that we can do the whole graphic novel. [link]
Look for updates as the campaign goes on. And please help spread the word!
