It's probably not quite possible for me to express how excited I am about this project within the confines of a blog posting. It's also not really possible for me to go into too much detail about it just yet either.
I will however post more about it just as soon as I can!
In the meantime, here is a sneaky, sneaky, leaky, peeky at one of the ships I've designed.
This ship is called "The Flea" and will be a regular hang out of the characters in the strip. I've spent a bit of time in sketchup working on this for the basis of the repeated scenery/background I'll need for a lot of the panels.
This is a work in progress cross-section of the Flea and although it's looking quite spacious here, one of the characters is pretty large and I expect things to be extremely cramped in there... especially when there is cargo in the way too!
The tone and content of the strip is a lot of fun to be working on and I'm delighted to have been asked to develop this strip with John!
