I have my good friend Pauline to thank for the idea of doing them in the first place!
When she said “Draw Jessica Rabbit!!!” a light bulb went on! So I drew her first request, Rogue from X-men. (which she has the original of)
The early images varied in style. I quickly ditched the pencil shading for cleaner and quicker colouring methods. I experimented with darker comic book inking shades and background styles.
Eventually, I found a style that worked! I started editing all the older images to match in.
You can see here below how one was re-worked to fit in with the final style I decided on!
I have a pretty fast system for firing them out now.
I sketch them up on trains or when sitting in comfortable company! Many of them have been drawn at the aforementioned Pauline’s house. She still enthusiastically messages me character ideas too!
My gals even went a bit viral!
It was the Jessica Jack Skellington that started the ball rolling. After posting to Facebook the shares went into the thousands and suddenly articles started appearing showing my series! I was so excited!
My stomach churned when I got an email from Her creator, Gary K. Wolf (YES he is still creating stories with these fab characters! He’s a very nice bloke and you should check out his site!).
I thought he was going to ask me to stop but he didn’t!
He just liked my fan art and emailed to say so.
The response has been humbling.
People have had the drawings tattooed on themselves and all sorts!
I am really grateful to everyone that shared the images and has supported me so far!
I have even had some really fun commission requests! (I am always open to suggestions.)
There are just so many of them now and I keep doing more!
So here they all are so far up to date.
How many do you recognize?
If you want a print, click on the image, it will take you right to the web shop.
If you just want to have a good old gander at them, here they are!
