On My Drawing Board


Still working through the thumbnail sketches for my next graphic novel. The script, which I always write first, is above the sketch pad. Although at times this stage of the process seems endless (211 pages total), it is really my favorite part. These little doodles are where most of the big drawing decisions are made.

My goal is to have them all finished before I leave for Book Expo next week...

Those are the prettiest and neatest thumbnails ever Matt! Mine are so messy.. haha.

Good luck with this and enjoy it! This is the part of the process where the story can go many different directions so it's fun to pick just the right path.

Matt I love this picture! Your drawing board and thumbnails look great! You have a good process going.

Will you be at ALA by chance? I will be there.

Hey, Ben. I just got home from BEA so I won't be going to ALA this year (sadly). you'll have a blast. Librarians are good people.
