Sketchbook - More Giants
My good pal Paul Rivoche had contacted me a while ago to possibly do some work on a comics project he was organizing. I don't really draw comics, at least not any more, but couldn't stand the idea of being left out so I suggested perhaps I might do a single page something or other for him. He thought a one page illustration with lots of little text boxes and things carrying descriptions of various parts of the picture might be a good idea. The kind of thing a kid can study and go back to. I came up with the idea of a giant who carries a village on his back. The village houses all the little workers and craftsmen who help the giant in his day to day comings and goings - leather workers, black smiths, carpenters, butchers etc. The project is up in the air at this point but I'm still thinking about this idea.
