Last summer, I’d vaguely hinted that I was working on a big project relating to Buster Keaton. It took me about a year to compile my research and visual notes, but after that, life got in the way. For a while, I felt pretty lost over where and how to actually begin the bulk of this project, and felt an additional sense of intimidation as this is my first crack at drawing in a format I’m not used to. However, when Lea announced her annual Buster Keaton blogathon, I thought it posed as the perfect opportunity to just get started on the thing, and now I can officially say I’m working on my own version of a Buster Keaton graphic novel.
I only have two pages to offer you, but it was the most I could do as of recent. I didn’t really have a clear idea of what I wanted to present until about a few weeks ago, and it’s been a mad dash trying to get these pages completed on time. Nevertheless, I’m quite pleased with how they turned out given the circumstances, and I hope you all enjoy this snippet from my book project! There’s a great deal more to come.
