The Librarian: Page 1

This is page one of a 12 page strip I drew from a script by the mighty Shaenon Garrity, she of Narbonic fame. I have it up on my portfolio site & at deviantArt, but it hasn't seen the light of day all that much so I figured I'd post it here too.

I had mentioned to Shaenon at a party at the Cartoon Art Museum during Wondercon 2007 that I was thinking of experimenting with something other than Pewfell & possibly working with other writers. The very next week she sent me the script for this. I loved the story, the fact that it was a bit more female-focused than much of what I have done before and that it was nearly wordless. I spend a long time on the character & setting design and really planned the whole thing out a lot more than I usually do. I also really wanted to push the coloring and layout further than I have before, and the script offered some great opportunities for this.
