See why I need to document the first sketches of characters I use? Below is how they turn out, torn and under a stack of things. Here is the first sketch as I brainstormed the introduction to Fearville, in this strip. As a reader commented, he may have a slight resemblance to Calvin, of Calvin & Hobbes, but I think that was accidental. ¬†Calvin & Hobbes is pretty much the reason I’m a comic strip artist, so I wouldn’t be surprised (nor ashamed) if little tidbits from it slip into my comic for many years to come.
