GOON A GO-GO
There comes a time in an illustrator's life where there is a rough patch, or rather, more of a desolate valley. A very barren landscape where creativity is hard to come by and self doubt is abundant. I'm going to let you in on a secret. Since I was a kid, I knew that I wanted to illustrate picture books. It was a given for me. Last year, I had the opportunity to illustrate said picture books. And the outcome, well, let's just say it was singularly one of the worst experiences of my life. The factors are many, and I refuse to elaborate on them now. Just know that the thought of illustrating picture books is still a tough nugget to swallow.
I know. I should pick up my pencils and show those suits just what this girl can do. (Holy Smokes) It's a process, right? I'm still trying to dust off the suit's lint and navigate back to the land of the free. You know that safe space where one can illustrate little creeps and not have to answer to the powers that be (the powers that really don't know how to be). Bare with me. What I'm trying to get at is this...I would like to develop some little characters into a serial webcomic. Something I've no experience with, but am up for the challenge. I hope it would be something you goons would dig.
The planning is still strictly developmental. So far, there is a haunted beach house, a girl named Thursday, a werewolf, and a ghost cat fondly called Scurb. In this post, I've included some recent depictions of the creeps getting ready for Halloween. Notice Thursday is the only one dressed in costume (Evel Knievel). I would like to title their adventures Goon A Go-Go and hope to have it up and running soon. Take it easy till then!
