Cover pencil sketch #1 for "Gaijin: American Prisoner of War", a graphic novel written and illus.d by me and publ.d by Disney/Hyperion. One of four full scale covers I put together to show a different palettes applied to the same design. As you can see I put way too many Japanese fighter planes above Koji's head. Had to cut it down by half. In the other sketches for the cover (which I'll post) most of the changes had to do with subtle adjustments to Koji's gestures.
