The image here was the impetus for the project. I drew it while I was waiting to see if I would be called to serve jury duty. I didn't get selected. I drew the above sketches as if they were the storyboards for a silent vampire film. When I decided to draw a comic book I was casting about for an idea and I recalled the several pages of sketches. I decided why not make my comic book about vampires, complete with moonlit graveyards, fog shrouded landscapes, intrepid heroes and heroines and did I mention vampires?
With that in mind I have decided to draw the comic book as if it were a silent film. There will be very little (if any) words as I want it to be a very visual experience. Because I also want it to be easy to read there will be no crazy page layouts.
I also plan to have it finished by the end of October. So I'm looking at over 120-180 panels that need to be drawn, maybe more, maybe less. That is a lot of drawing.
I have also decided that I'm definitely going to post some in progress videos.
This should be fun.
