Comic Book Character Designs

June 15, 2008

These are the first character designs for my new comic, so far the working title is ‘Kate’, the main character of the piece. I aim to draw a full comic quarterly. As of yet, I’m not sure if I’ll post the whole issue in one, or in parts. Keep an eye on this space and I’ll eventually make up my mind!

Comments welcome
