Script: Greg Meldrum Art and Lettering: David Broughton.

A piccy from this wibbly wobbly timey wimey... story.

Owen Watts editor of  the 'Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel' sent me a script on the 4th of April 2013. The script was writen by none other than Greg Meldrum. If you have read my blog before you may be aware that I co-created Martillo and worked on various other fantastic scripts written by Greg. I had a fair amount of artwork on the go which meant that I didn't start drawing this story until the 9th of July. I think the deadline Owen had given me was January 1st 2014, so I  had plenty of time. As usual I've provided thumbnail sketches, rough layouts and finished pencils with comments detailing my process below.  I sent Owen the fully coloured and lettered artwork on the 22nd of July.

Above: After reading the script a couple of times I produced really rough thumbnails of pages one and two.

Above: Then based on the first impressions from the rough thumbnails I produced more detailed page layouts for pages one and two. As a matter of course I made sure that I included word balloons in the layouts to make sure that I had room for everything.

Above: Finally I produced the finished pencils for page one which can be seen above.

Above: The finished pencils for page two.

Above: Rough thumbnails for pages three and four.

Above: Then as with the page layouts for pages one and two I produced more detailed page layouts for pages three and four.  This story had more than a few complex panels to visualize and these layouts helped me to make sense of them.

Above: Finished pencils for page three.

Above: Finished pencils for page four.

Above: Rough thumbnail sketches for the main character and creatures appearing in the story.
