RED AS BLUE rough sketches

We are near wrapping up on the artwork for the RED AS BLUE graphic novel. Juan (the artist) sent me some sketches that are too adorable.

One of my favorite scenes in the story is of the two girls escaping to the desert. Although the sketch is really rough, I printed it out on scrap Xerox paper and mounted it on my wall. Upon closer look, I can see the bleed-through and my script is on the other side of the paper.

I love the “rough” phases of a creative process. I enjoy looking at them more so than the finished product—although the finished is also nice. I like the dirty rough edges of a work-in-progress. When I look at it, I see possibilities.

There is an honesty to unfinished work that makes it feel very alive.

The Three Gates of Speech stipulates that you ask these questions before putting your foot in your mouth: Is it True? Is it Necessary? Is it Kind? Since this doesn't fit the purpose for every occassion, the criteria for my path is: Is it True? Is it Necessary? Is it Indigo?

What's up with me...
