My attitude toward producing VAL-MAR: Gifted and Cursed was clear direct communication about difficult subject matter.
For me, as a serious fan of Sci-Fi as well as the comic book genre, it meant not being retentive about the drawing but throwing the images out there with the real energy of the story.
I made an effort to leave much of it in a rough stage, in keeping with what is being expressed within the content.
In short, I didn't want "it" to be about me and my egotistical need to impress people with image. There was something in this story that was bigger than that... that I believe is necessary.
In keeping with that, from time to time I will share some barebones sequentials from the production.
I look forward to your impressions of these and how they relate to the book itself.
These images are the foundation for the rendering as they appear in final production.
This story, VAL-MAR Gifted and Cursed, is told through the eyes of a young homeless girl, living in the streets of Times Square, NYC .
Although in an overwhelming situation, flexibility of thought and ferocious tenacity allows her to transcend the extreme nature of her reality... with a chance to become more than she could ever dream.
