Charles & Renfield Minicomic – 5 Days Left

31 Jul

Oh shit. 5 days?! It’s getting scary now.

Today was all about Page Eight, in which Renfield is introduced.

Rough sketch for page 8

I actually did an uncharacteristically large amount of the pencils on the vellum. Usually I pencil a very tight draft on printer paper before moving to vellum, but this time was different. It got messy. :/

Page 8 is DONE!

Page eight, I am pleased with you. You have a lot of shiny things going on with you, and I like shiny. Page eight has some nods to stuff that inspired this book, or maybe, to put it more accurately, the whole vampire universe these two live in. Renfield’s reading the original Bram Stoker Dracula and there’s the moth in a jar and the spider above him to suggest he eats bugs, or at the very least is obsessed with them, just like his namesake. And then the newspaper on the floor is named Fuck It after the Ashley Wood book of the same name that I picked up recently. No denying that Ashley Wood has been a big inspiration for me while doing this particular minicomic.

Skinny boys.

And, in less exciting news, the back cover is also finally finished!

Plowing ahead! By the way, for those of you in the NYC area, Pete’s Candy Store here in Brooklyn is having a “mini zine fest” tomorrow (actually, today as it’s past midnight) which I’ll probably be stopping by. It looks like it’ll be a good opportunity to swap some minicomics without all the madness and hype of a real con. *thumbsup*

More soon?

self-imposed deadline in 5 days. oh no oh no oh no oh yes!
