Ticket, spread number 7, page 2


Here's one of the more different (more different?) pages from Ticket. It has since been painted.

I got locked out of the office a couple months ago. I left my keys on my desk and wandered downstairs to get some soup and when I came back everyone had gone. And locked the door.

I went back into the store, bought a pad of paper and a pen and sat down by the door. While I sat squinting in the reflected sun off the white paper I made a list of everything I like to draw. This was right around the time I found out that I'd be doing a "zine" and was putting together ideas for it. Would it be one of older stories? Should I try to adapt some more "established" story of mine? Or should I try to make up something new. I decided to take an "established" character, Lily von Silvie Lenore, and write a new story around her. I liked the idea and began scrawling down ideas.

Oh, and eventually an intern arrived with a key.

I was able to fit about half of the list into Ticket. We'll see if we get a sequel.

In any case I could not be more pleased with the way this project has shaped up and I can't wait to see it printed.

That looks great! I can't wait to see the rest... so when you say zine is it really going to be a simplified version of a children's book or something? It looks like you have a main character and I'm interested to see what she's up to :).

"Zine" is a bit misleading but we can't really think of what else to call them.

A typical zine is small and cheaply printed.

These are printed 8.5 x 11 on heavy paper with a color cover on heavy cardstock. They're somewhere between a very nice magazine and paperback children's book.

They look and feel hefty. Scroll down around in my past posts to see the other one our studio has done.

Thanks Cory. I checked out the entry you did on Sweet Ride and it cleared everything up. I got Beowulf for my birthday and it'll be neat to see what you come up with. I look forward to seeing the completed 'ticket'!
