THE HELL OF IT’

I’m in a Hell Frame of Mind….

So, I’ve started working on my book The Hell of It (working title) as a straight prose novel, having basically abandoned the notion of it being a graphic novel. With Pariah due to hit the shelves (and internet outlets) on August 3rd, 2010 (so order yours now, in either spiffy trade paperback or spiffier hardcover!), I’m just feeling more and more that prose is the way to go. I enjoy writing novels enormously and I think I’m good at it. That said, I am doing some more prep art for The Hell of It, just to get me in that headspace; to help picture it. Here’s a couple of quick sketches I just did. I’ll post more later.

hellscape001-tonedI like this one well enough, but it was more of a warm-up.

hellscape002-tonedThis one I quite like. Done very quickly (whole thing maybe 90 minutes).

MORE HELL

The character Dot works as a registrar in Hell. Impatient demons tap their hooves and expect miracles from her.

DEMON SKETCHES FOR THE HELL OF IT

Still working up some sketches to help sell my Hell GN. Going to work on some more, but thought I’d share these of some demon types.

THE HELL OF IT

These might be the final sketches of 2009. Maybe not, but they’re probably the final ones I’ll post this year. These are character design sketches for the book I want to do set in Hell. I am hoping to finally find a home for this baby in 2010. I’ve wanted to do this story for many years, though its earlier outlines were quite different. The plot has finally gelled, so let’s hope that I finally set it to paper soon.
