This sketch is of some kids I have in mind for a story that I’ll some day get around to doing. It’s sort of a Narnia meets Goonies thing that’s been floating around in the back of my brain for a year or so now. I included some sketches along these lines in my 2005 Convention Sketchbook. I think I’ll probably post those pages later this week. I knew they had a cool tree house but this is the first time I’ve gone about drawing it. I’m sure it’ll see many variations over time. The labeled items (kind of a Richard Scarry homage) are different things you’d find in a kids bag if he were packing for an adventure. I used to pack a twelve foot length of rope–just in case I needed to swing back and forth under a low branch. I decided not to include that. Because these kids are dorky I probably should’ve packed their D&D Monster Manual.
