No matter what media I work in I always do a preliminary sketch before starting. This is the sketch for the year-in-gestation cut-paper sculpture project I have been darkly murmuring about the last few days. After doing so many Daddy-and-Meghan pieces for my daughter’s “Cartoon Meggie” book I though I would do something larger – hence the brown-skin-and-brunette complexion instead of Stargirl’s usual blonde surf-bunnie look.
Well, as it is I am going back to the customary ocean-bound-lepus theme for the final piece. I’ve come up with a cooler concept depicting Meghan and her son Jayden as mer-people which frees this for use as a comic-cover-on-spec like I did with the Power Girl cut-paper piece I did a year+ ago.
