Where it all began, with the creation of a living stuffed rabbit. This is the beginning of an ongoing exploration of Stitches’ early years proceeding the events in the graphic novel that is in progress. A series of online comics in full colour allows me to explore Stitches psychological nature, or more so, his condition, to further broaden his appeal.
The story within “State of Mind” is Stitches transition from self-obssession to a place where he sees his value in his newly realized form. These comics allow me to focus entirely on encounters and observations that Stitches has, as a purely confused and fractured individual. As well, it allows me to work with Manga Studio Pro EX5 in full colour, so that I can further explore the various options the application has for streamlining the process of using it as a primary tool.
These comics will evolve in fits and spurts, along with my graphic novel, because I don’t have the necessary publisher agreement … or funds to just get it done. Typical of this industry, slog away doing it first, and maybe it will result in something tangible down the road.
