Snow Camels and Frog Pirates

In my last post I said I’d post more of these drawings that revolve around this “all ages” story of mine. The following two pages were cobbled together sketches that I had put into a last minute con sketchbook to take with me to Chicago last summer.
Do be sure to click on the image so you can see it a little better.
The title of the post indicates two of my more favorite sketches/ideas on these two pages. I love the idea of a snow white camel trudging across an arctic landscape with it’s breath steaming up (upper left corner). A friend suggested that it have hot chocolate in it’s hump instead of water. I’d had the same idea but, unfortunately, I think it’s too unrealistic for this world I’m building. Frog pirates, on the other hand, make perfect sense. The frog pirate seems to be a favorite of a lot of people. He’s part of a larger crew of enchanted pirates that also include a gerbil and a mouse. It all makes perfect sense in the story, of course. I had imagined the gorilla walking the halls of a castle, possibly as a guard. Then, I was recently at the comic store looking at Tintin books when I ran across the same image. I think it was in The Black Island–curses on you Herge! Whenever I think of this story I imagine it being presented in the classic European album style like the Tintin or Asterix books, for example. Ah, to dream…
You can be sure to see more of this style from me in the future. Of course, until I can find someone willing to pay me to draw like this you’ll just have to keep coming back here to see it.
