2 sketches and the final art for page 138 of "Gaijin: American Prisoner of War", a graphic novel written and illus.d by me, released by Disney/Hyperion in April! So, here is a quick display of the sketch process on an important page. I did a very detailed sketch- seen on the left- and was very proud of it. Unfortunately, it had a little too much going on and my editor pointed that out. Drat! So I did another draft- middle sketch- this one more clearly showing the hero in the center of the page. We went back and forth and eventually the design for the color piece on the right won out. Making books is fun!
