I've started work on a new project, a one-shot short story set on an unidentified Scottish island, sometime in the future.
This one's a bit of an adventure for me. First off, this is the first original fiction comic I've written and illustrated. Most of my work in the past has been non-fiction, and I've been pushing a documentary approach for a while now.
Secondly, I'm trying to work a much looser style than usual - the project's going to be all hand drawn (though computer coloured), and I'm hoping to create something here where I don't obsess endlessly on getting things 'right'. It's a cartoonier style as a result. I'm working with a mix of roller-ball and brush pens.
Mostly, I'm just wanting to create something for the sake of it, for once. Not having to answer to clients and collaborators is pretty refreshing, though kind of scary too.
