Here’s a look at the map for Horton Halfpott when I was part way through inking it…
I was telling Cece that these 50 drawings for Horton Halfpott may be the most work I’ve ever done on anything. Compared to this the writing is a breeze.
I have researched clothing and architecture of the era. I have doodled and sketched and traced and inked and made mistakes and had to do stuff over until I’ve been half-blinded by the glare of the lightbox.
But it’s almost done now. Just a few odds and ends left to go.
And the best news: the very last drawing in the book is perhaps the very best thing I’ve ever drawn. (But when the time comes don’t flip back to look at it, you’ll spoil the ending!)
