ps: I know you guys, some of you will say that he looks old and all that jazz, but just for you to know, it was my personal challenge to outdo myself as an artist and try and make a hyper-realistic portrait, so all the wrincles are the result of it. Will do a “process” post in 2 days…
Today I’m asking you guys to check out the Kickstarter my awesome friends, Emily Felt and Laura West put together for the first volume of their graphic novel Olive and the Underworld!
From the creators:
Olive and the Underworld is a 50 page, full color graphic novel. While there are mature themes such as death and the afterlife, Olive doesn’t contain graphic violence or harsh curse words and so would be suitable for a young adult audience as well as adults.
At its heart, this is a story about the sometimes lonely journey one goes on to find one’s place in the world. Who am I? Where do I belong? Who will love me? And learning along the way that things aren’t always what they seem.
Typically I’ve only promoted animated projects on The Animation Archive - but even more than animation I love comics and graphic novels as a form of storytelling.
I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Olive and the Underworld. I love
Laura West’s art in this, she’s an incredible artist with a history in the entertainment industry.
Head on over to Kickstarter and support this awesome project if you can - if you can’t then help me spread the word!
