A silly 4 pager from a few years back. I did this for a pal of mine and his lady-friend. Quite a few in-jokes.
This is from about six or seven years ago. It’s one of a million projects that never really went anywhere. It’s pretty horrible looking. I’m happy that the car turned out okay without looking too photo-referenced and the goopy ghost at the bottom is pretty neat, I guess.
The plan was to do a fun horror story without any words. I still want to try that sometime. I rely on dialogue in my comics. Almost all my characterization comes from dialogue and narration, propped up by body language and visual cues. The visual aspect of my comics, in terms of raw storytelling and character, always takes a backseat. I wanted to do away with the things I think I’m good at and try to challenge other parts of my brain. I also like the idea of stories that anyone can read, regardless of reading level or what language they were raised with.
This particular story was going to be based heavily on Dracula. The dude in the car was supposed to be a Jonathan Harker type. Kind of dumb but maybe I’ll try a different approach to something like this one of these days.
these are from 2008 or so. I colored them with coffee and it turned out pretty cool. Elijahbrubaker.com
