Episode 25

This weekend I wrapped up episode 25 in graphic novel # 7. The time seems to fly by while illustrating it’s fun to see my characters come to live in color and on paper.  This issue certainly has it’s fair share of drama, explosions and crazy antics. All of this is bittersweet since it means the series finale is approaching. In the meantime, I can enjoy spending time with this group of characters a little bit longer. The first season ( Books 1 – 4 ) focused specifically on visual artists from all over the world and different mediums. During the second season  ( Books 5 – 7 ) I decided to focus on both artists and architecture. Architecture, according to art history, is considered to be a three-dimensional form of sculpture and visual art. Many of the primary locations my characters visit are historical landmarks which celebrate architecture as a form of visual art.


The last few days I’ve been developing the storyboards for the 7th GESSO SQUAD graphic novel.  The chapters in this book are lengthy. My guess is the final comic will be about 100 pages.  The 1st graphic novel took 8 months to complete including revisions. All the others which came after were finished in 4-6 weeks. I spend 18-25 hours rendering each chapter from start to finish depending on the storyboard and screenplay.  I think it would be fun to have a Halloween release date for book # 7…so we’ll see…
