I started this comic 5 years ago. I never read comic books as a kid, but I got the strange idea that I could draw my personal novel (the one about Teisni and Aian) as a comic, and I wanted to try a "test run" first. So I selected this story that I had running around in my head. But my lovely obsessive nature immediately took over and I spent the next 5 years rewriting the "screenplay" and redrawing the characters over and over. I have come to the conclusion that I suck at this. But I want to finish this damn thing so I am going to do it anyway. Hopefully I will get better as I go, but it's been 5 years and I still suck so I have little hope of that.
I chose 8X11 pencil sketches as my medium because it was the easiest and most familiar. As I progress I hope to switch to digital, and in color. Maybe in book 2 I will try a size more suited to a browser window. But all that will have to wait.
"Out by the Oak Leaf" is from The Perilous Gard by Elizabeth Marie Pope (see Favorite Books).
