Hey friends! Just a little post with some sneak peeks and also to let you know things are still progressing!!! Only one and half chapters left to draw in our first volume of Charting Stars! It’s amazing the things you learn during a process like this and I’ve certainly come to a full understanding of how long it takes to create a graphic novel! Haha! Whew! Our hope was to have the first book released by the end of this year but things in life just like to take their own course sometimes and our release date is looking more like it will be in January. Never fear though, this book is coming even if it’s later than intended!!! Thanks for your patience and for sticking with us!!! Pssst… remember you can follow along more closely with us on Instagram or on Facebook!
On Instagram there is an event called Inktober in which you follow a list of prompts for the month of October and do one ink drawing with each prompt per day. Well of course our Charting Stars character have made it into my Inktober series and I though it would be fun to share some of those here with you. Please keep in mind that you can follow along with our progress on a more regular basis via Facebook and Instagram!
Summer is a crazy time of year to try writing blog posts, staying inside to work and not going to the beach instead! 😉 Ha ha! We continue to push on though and our first graphic novel in the Charting Stars series is developing nicely. Attached here are a few sneak peeks at the some frames from the first chapter of our novel and I’ve also attached more concept art as well.
I hope you are all having the loveliest summer. Can’t wait for you to read our first book this fall!
Our first book in the Charting Stars series is completed, back from the editor and now I am drawing, drawing, drawing and DRAWING some more. ;P (Actually it’s my favourite thing to do so it’s not so bad – ha ha. :D) The prologue is nearly all drawn and we’ll be sharing it here with you soon – can’t wait to show you!!! In the mean time attached is some newer drawings and concept art that I hope you’ll enjoy. If you’d like to see more daily posts be sure to follow Whimsical on Instagram or on Facebook!
