Searching for character!

Whether I’m writing or drawing I tend to take my characters for a walk to see how they interact with their environment. It’s the quickest way for me to get an idea of their personality. I’ll do little vignettes and see what they see and how they may act given the perception of who I think they might be.

Eventually with enough perseverance they’re telling me where they want to go.

It’s important to me to have backstory and a lot of side elements that won’t go in the final product, much like when preparing for an acting role. Everything informs the characters decisions of how they’ll act and react. Then the hard part really is getting the dialogue to sound natural and consistent with who they are.

So I don’t forget to mention it, Things Undone will be out in August at your favorite local comics shop…and the general public I believe by October/November. If you like what you see ask your favorite store to order it ahead of time.
