When I was a kid back in 1978 I got invited to take photos at the Grease party on Paramount Studios back lot. Everyone was there including John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, of course. I had no idea about the magnitude of this film and how it would be revered decades later. At the time, Travolta lived in my building at 100 S Dohney, but I never saw him.  I think that he was in the Penthouse and I was in apartment # 716. The building is still there and I drive by it all the time and  reminisce of those magical years.

A little way off was a small brook, rushing and sparkling along between
green banks, and murmuring in a voice very grateful to a little girl
who had lived so long on the dry, gray prairies.

Opening pages for chapters 1 and 2. The plan is to have images like this for every chapter.

The Chapter 11 illustration is probably the most ambitious one yet so I thought I would make a post about the process! People like that stuff, right? I hope you like that stuff.

I had a vague image of the city as a complicated, squarish M.C. Escher-looking place, and did a lot of obtuse little thumbnail drawings to figure out how to convey that in a way that made sense. Sticking to every single detail of Baum’s elaborate description of the place probably wouldn’t make a very readable image, so I tried not to do anything that deviated from the text too much, and focused on what I saw as the most important aspects: shining stone and metal and general opulence, a sense of total otherness from every previous location, and some shops and people walking around. Also a sort of sterility makes sense, in light of the characters’ experiences in the city and discoveries about it. A kind of interesting paradox I’m figuring out: if an illustration is to serve the story, it isn’t always the best thing for it to illustrate every single detail as written in the text.

I penciled and inked the final drawing at 8 by 12 inches— I pencil very loosely because I don’t like things looking too neat, usually. The inks are done with india ink and G-nib, which I have really only started using with this project and I like it a lot.

Inks are cleaned and colors are done in Photoshop in several layers: flat colors to designate everything its “local” color, and then one Multiply layer for general shadowy stuff, and then a few layers of soft light, hard light, overlay, or any other sort of thing to be tweaked endlessly until I am sick of it. This version is adjusted a bit from the previous one and I think it looks a little better! I will probably mess with it again.

A couple more chapter illos will show the City, so we’ll see a bit more of it. And it is really fun to draw, so I am looking forward to that!

Did you know! I have a new book out!

The four travelers walked up to the great gate of Emerald City and rang the bell.  After ringing several times, it was opened by the same Guardian of the Gates they had met before.
"What! are you back again?" he asked, in surprise.
And we’re back! I just finished the first half of my webcomic Vattu and I’m taking a break on updating that for a month; one of the (several) things I’ll be working on in that time is the Wizard of Oz project! Halfway done; expect more soon.
I skipped ahead for this one because I wanted to draw more Emerald City stuff (previously). This is Chapter 15, when Dorothy and friends return to the City from Winkie-land.
Got some fun ones coming up.

"
  1. You are stronger than you realise.
  2. You are crueller than you realise.
  3. The smallest words will break your heart.
  4. You will change. You’re not the same person you were three years ago. You’re not even the same person you were three minutes ago and that’s okay. Especially if you don’t like the person you were three minutes ago.
  5. People come and go. Some are cigarette breaks, others are forest fires.
  6. You won’t like your name until you hear someone say it in their sleep.
  7. You’ll forget your email password but ten years from now you’ll still remember the number of steps up to his flat.
  8. You don’t have to open the curtains if you don’t want to.
  9. Never stop yourself texting someone. If you love them at 4 a.m., tell them. If you still love them at 9.30 a.m., tell them again.
  10. Make sure you have a safe place. Whether it’s the kitchen floor or the Travel section of a bookshop, just make sure you have a safe place.
  11. You will be scared of all kinds of things, of spiders and clowns and eating alone, but your biggest fear will be that people will see you the way you see yourself.
  12. Sometimes, looking at someone will be like looking into the sun. Sometimes someone will look at you like you are the sun. Wait for it.
  13. You will learn how to sleep alone, how to avoid the cold corners but still fill a bed.
  14. Always be friends with the broken people. They know how to survive.
  15. You can love someone and hate them, all at once. You can miss them so much you ache but still ignore your phone when they call.
  16. You are good at something, whether it’s making someone laugh or remembering their birthday. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that these things don’t matter.
  17. You will always be hungry for love. Always. Even when someone is asleep next to you you’ll envy the pillow touching their cheek and the sheet hiding their skin.
  18. Loneliness is nothing to do with how many people are around you but how many of them understand you.
  19. People say I love you all the time. Even when they say, ‘Why didn’t you call me back?’ or ‘He’s an asshole.’ Make sure you’re listening.
  20. You will be okay.
  21. You will be okay.

MYTHOLOGY MEME - [4/?] GREEK GODS/GODDESSES: ARES

"Hail to you Ares, martial, seething lord
You from whom all war’s terrors have poured
As tears have poured from sorrow’s rain
Mixing with bloodshed, the crimson stain
That becomes a lamentable river which flows.”
