I’m about to embark on a revision of a manuscript, and in an effort to better sink back down into the world of the story, I’ve been looking through the drawings I did while writing the first draft. Here’s a look at some of them. Below you’ll meet a handful of the story’s main characters, and also find a few hints about what they get up to as events unfold.
. . .
A suspicious Mr. Worrest.
An exhausted Mr. Worrest.
Barnaby St. James (not to be confused with Rich Uncle Pennybags, a.k.a. “The Monopoly Man”)
The cockatrice — a supposedly mythical creature…
A few selections from Uncle Carl’s library.
A few selections from Mr. Worrest’s library (the cover story of GOSSIP was, sadly, pulled directly from an actual tabloid).
MENTAL Magazine — the only thing our narrator is interested in reading.
The curious contents of Mr. Worrest’s fanny pack.
The search for Mr. Worrest.
For this trip into my sketchbook, I’d like to introduce you to a handful of the stars of one of my current works in progress. The first few characters might look like regular old unassuming kids, but let’s just say they’ve got some rather . . . unusual abilities — ones that very much come in handy when an ice cream truck-driving villain pulls into their town.
. . .
Very obviously NOT Ms. Collins.
This guy drives an ice cream truck and has some evil plans up his sleeve. “Free shovel with every purchase!”
