Finally!!! I’ve finished my entry for this year’s graphic novel short story prize by The Random House Group and Observer.
According to the website, this year’s judges include Joe Sacco (Palestine) and Simone Lia (Fluffy) which really makes the competition worth going for.
I drew a children’s story using fruit as they are, globally, easy to recognise. It was an idea I came up with when I was in Hong Kong towards the end of last year, but left it in a sketchbook until now. Using fruit as comic-book characters may encourage children to eat more of it, too.
This strip took me a solid week from conception to completion, i.e., the pencilling, the inking, hand-lettering, scanning and cleaning, and watercolouring etc.
If only I could draw MX2 at this speed…
