Ta-da! Short post today, but if a picture is a thousand words . . . (Click to get a better image.) This is one of the first colored panels from the upcoming Hollows graphic novel, and I’m really pleased. I like this shot the best of the six or so that I’ve seen because it shows Ivy’s beauty against the stark ugliness of Piscary’s. (the back room) She’s free and independent–and chained, unable to free herself from the very things she loves and hates. This panel might encapsulate her life, almost.
It doesn’t hurt that Kisten is in there, too. And since I’m talking about Kisten, I want to mention that he is a very hard character to nail down in terms of looks. He still isn’t exactly the way I pictured him, but his image is growing on me, and I’m starting to identify with him more and more.
Oh! And the ring? It is costume jewelry. I’ll have a picture tomorrow, but I plan on making it part of my standard signing outfit, so if you come to a signing, you can see it in person.
