I’m doing a comics project with my very talented friend Yen Ooi; she’s doing the writing and I’m doing the drawing. It’s called 05:11 and features two sinister fellows called The Grey Gentlemen, inspired by two characters of the same name in the novel Momo by Michael Ende. Kind of like Frasier spinning off from Cheers. Anyway here are the first two pages – this is my first foray into drawing a comic, it’s a fascinating challenge. You have endless choices of how to frame everything?! Also I’m trying to keep my storyboarding hat on, ie drawing quite quickly to keep away any labouring perfectionism – I want to keep it fun and a little sketchy.
