On Monday I briefly introduced you to my latest project that will make it’s debut online next week – five days of drawing Big Al the gal’s “Haiku Ewe” comic on GoComics.com. Here is another teaser for you today in anticipation of Monday’s debut.
Above are some of my extremely rough thumbnail sketches of a few of the week’s comics. Al wrote all of the haikus, and I came up with my twisted interpretation of her words. While you may not be able to tell what exactly is going on in these small sketches, I can. They are meant just for me. If I have to submit thumbnails to clients, the sketches will be clearer, but these were done in a matter of seconds to help me with placement and to get ideas down quickly.
I don’t wish to give away too much about the series, but here are a few of my more detailed drawings that I sent to Al for her approval. The first two are just snippets of one of the comic that involves Haiku Ewe and a mountain lion.
And this last one is the pencil drawing of the comic that will appear on Monday. You are getting to see the whole drawing because the humor is only fully realized when you see the art with Al’s great haiku. For that, you must wait until Monday!
And if you visit “Haiku Ewe” next week, know that my finals are full blown watercolor illustrations. Each day Al’s sweet little lamb will face certain doom while rendered in beautiful, genuine Winsor & Newton watercolor!
