Sketch Morning

River Styx

Spent the morning working on rough sketches for three short stories for an upcoming issue of River Styx. Forgotten how much fun this sort of conceptualizing could be. I think this is my favorite part of my job, visualizing images from fiction. Once I get to the finish stage, it tends to be more ‘assembly line process’, if you know what I mean. Wish I could keep the same spontaneity in the finish phase. Need to work on that.

Anyhow, roughly, the three stories were about: 1) a spur of the moment bit of revenge infidelity under the stars 2) a social worker dealing with children who were witnesses to domestic violence and 3) a father who jumps into a gravel pit swimming hole (to disastrous consequences) in front of his kids
