I made a lot of people! Forty-seven, to be precise, and they have been flipped over and over again so if something buttons the wrong way or a logotype is mirrored, that’s why. I’m sorry. They’re all from the same world, thought different layers of it, and all are part of a project of mine and and xhakhal’s (tag “Spinal”). Three of the pictures has logotypes (mine) in the top right corner and the people on those pictures are all involved in the company in question in one way or another.
Names, from top to bottom, going from left to right (all characters in italicsbelong to xhakhal, the rest are mine) Some characters appear more than once, in different stages of their life:
#1 - Shield 1 Erik Morhenge, Francis Nowell, Alexander Roos, Tove Mochizuki, Jona Eide, Lisp (Isabela Buabueng), Khima Nikai, Nadja Dahir
#2 - Morrow Enterprises Immanuel Martínez, Nima Quriós Kahveci, Jona Eide, Aaron Whittaker, Ester Morrow, Samuel Vaughan, Tere Cairéz, Tracy Beckett, Terry Beckett
#3 - Shield 2 Adrian Kucharskij, Henry Rosenberg, Zacharias Sabelfeldt, Lisp (teenager), Aaron Whittaker, Ian Glaive
#4 - Leichter Selai Roos, Jonatan Roos, Tove Mochizuki (older), Alexander Roos Jona Eide, Lisp, Jasper Jones, Sara Ward
#5 - Various Sky Jasper Jones, Elizabeth Abravanel, Toya Mochizuki, Samir Gallamore Khelán Gallamore Alkourashi, Jeremiah Skies, Malin Eide, Erik Morhenge, Alicia Roos
#6 - Joann Nicolas Debonlier, Mette Grip, Joann Grip, Jonathan Grip, Olivia Lewis-Grip, Liv Bialek-Grip, Cala al-Qadi
Writing their stories here would get too long. I won’t tag all characters this time, just some. No werewolves in this universe.
Erik Jones "Was born in 1982 in a sunny beach community in St. Petersburg Florida. He received a bachelor’s degree from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2007. Out of college, Working primarily in cover illustration, Erik toured the US, showing at different pop culture and art conventions. He gradually made his way to Brooklyn, New York in 2009, where he now resides. Erik’s work is vibrant and colorful, expressing a heightened sense of realism, captured in his female subjects, juxtaposed with sporadic mark making and nonrepresentational forms that could be said to mimic geometric high-end fashion. This effect is achieved by using multiple mediums such as watercolor, colored pencil, acrylic, water-soluble wax pastel and water-soluble oil on paper mounted to board.“
