Dwayne Hickenbottom Graphic Novel.

A while ago I had the idea of taking my Dwayne Hickenbottom character and moving him into different media, namely a graphic novel. Dwayne had appeared in comics before ( see here ) so it shouldn't have been too great a step.

Unfortunately, it wasn't financially viable for me to sit down and draw 88 pages ( 88+ days work) when I could be drawing for somebody else and making some money. As it happens I'm still waiting on that somebody else to come along.

So in the meantime I've produced a handful of paintings and done some small time comic jobs for other people. Now with the unavoidable reality of having to step away from the dream and get a "real" job - or at least one that pays anyway, Dwayne Hickenbottom the Graphic Novel is well and truly on the back burner.

Here's the adventure so far.

Any and all feedback welcomed.
