Now that I’ve finally finished the Urban Faeries series, and before I get really deep into my next series of paintings, I’m taking a break and doing something completely different. I’m thinking of it as an artistic palette-cleanser. I’m going to have a go at doing a small 6-page comic.
Luckily for me, I have a writer-in-residence: my husband! (Neil Beynon) who has written the script and even given me a breakdown by panel. Needless to say, I am massively out of my comfort zone and probably my depth. I’m using bits of my brain I haven’t used in ages and it’s a steep learning curve to say the least!
As a complete break from my usual working process and never one to shy away from a challenge, I’ve also decided to draw it in alcohol marker pens, which I’ve never used before! These Windsor and Newton promarkers if you’re interested.
