Well that face about explains it ladies and gents! The point of no return! It’s amazing what such small steps can do.
Since I started my baby steps toward bringing Shattered Mirror onto paper, so much has changed. Completing page 3 now, all at once I’m feeling empowered that my dreams are indeed possible and battling fears that this journey is too much for me to tackle alone.
Either way, I love these characters too much to not let them live anywhere but my head… so push ahead I will! Inking will start today so keep posted for some really finished pieces!
Cheers to the journey ahead!
My return from vacation met me with a most pleasant surprise! My drawing model has arrived! Which means… time for me to be a hermit and draw in my room until my pilot is completed.
Tootles till next time!
Just a little teaser, excuse the photo quality!
Two down, three more to go and then the inking fun begins!
After only two pages in the making it’s become clear just how helpful a reference figurine would be… so I ordered one! It comes with props, a stand, and can even cross it’s legs! Keep tuned to see that little guy in the next few days- super excited!
Bringing this story that’s been so near and dear to my heart for so long now has been an adventure! Such a thrilling yet terrifying thing to follow your dreams. Looking forward to what lies ahead!
Thank you for reading!
After five years of planning and concept art and re-planning and overthinking… Shattered Mirror made its first steps toward becoming a thing today. Here’s a sneak peak at page one. I’ll show the completed page when all 5 pages of the pilot are released.
In 2014 I travelled to the southern United States with inner-city youth from Detroit. Before that trip, I knew that racism and inequality of all kinds existed– but that experience opened my eyes to a whole new level that I had not been exposed to before.
During that trip, the concept for my graphic novel Shattered Mirror was born– a story of nonviolent living and fighting back against social inequality.
With my recent internship completed, I came to a realization that commercial art, while lucrative, is not what I need to do with my life. I want to feel my art… to raise my voice toward a higher cause and use what little influence I have to make the world around me a kinder place.
Join me as I launch Shattered Mirror!
To new beginnings!
