The Lost Island of Dreams pg22

Here are three stages of page 22. Pencils, inks and finally colour and copy. The drawing and inks are done traditionally on paper, scanned and then coloured using Photoshop. Copy and word balloons are then added in InDesign.

Wednesday, 3 October 2012

Here is another example of rethinking a page. I got to fix some of the drawing plus add a bit more drama to the scene.

The lads finally arrive at their destination. Will Tommaso's plan work? Who will survive? I'm getting there, I promise.

Wednesday, 5 September 2012

The Lost Island of Dreams pg16 completed

I decided to redraw this page as well. It works much better this way as a complete unit which I always try to attain with my layouts.

Tuesday, 21 August 2012

The Lost Island of Dreams pg15 completed


I ended up redrawing this page as well as the last. Found I'd rushed through a bunch of pages and didn't like the result. Will probable redraw a few more.

The Lost Island of Dreams pg14 finished

I'm half way finished now. I actually redrew two thirds of this page because I didn't like what I'd done originally. Kind of boring and bad drawing.

The Lost Island of Dreams pg 11 completed

This one was slow going but here's page 11 of The Lost Island of Dreams. The sailors discover that "The Farmer" did not drown but is still alive and not who they thought he was.

The Lost Island of Dreams pg10 completed

Here's another page from The Lost Island Dreams story, Page 10 to be exact. (I will finish it this year).

The Lost Island of Dreams page 8 finished

I've been very busy of late with commercial projects, so this story is taking a long time but here is page eight. Will be illustrating a children's book soon which means I probably won't be pumping out the pages for this story any faster. I'm not complaining, just not getting any momentum going.

The Lost Island of Dreams pg 20 pencils

This never happened to me before. I wrote The Lost Island of Dreams as a 24 pg story but condensed it to 16 pager as a backup. Getting into it however I restored it to 24 pages but I was having so much fun I've now expanded it to 28. Thankfully I self-publish and have no editor. Here's page 20.

The Lost Island of Dreams pg19 pencils


There are a few things that bother me about the storytelling on this page but I'll deal with them when it's time to ink. For now, it's on to page 20.

The Lost Island of Dreams pg18 pencils


On page 18 our hero Tommaso has a plan but one of the sailors becomes impatient. Not always a good way to go about things.

On this page the sailors turn down a plea by the Wizard to what sounds like a suicide mission. The hero of our story though, says he will do it, prompting the rest to wonder if he is up to something and so change their minds. The Wizard is happy.
