Archive: Grand Decadence

Have a look at something from the archives: development sketches I did for a comic written by Kieron Gillen & Jim Rossignol. The (very) loose plan being that it might be a miniseries from Image once it had been kicked around.
These were scribbled… Mostly six years ago. Gulp.

The idea being that the story followed this big-bloke/little-bloke pair of main characters as the rest of the insane world they lived in… Happened to them. I seem to remember having great fun pushing the big-bloke/little-bloke idea visually, then being egged on by Kieron and going even further… (See below.)

Big Bloke: ennormous, shouty, murderous.

…”Death Wigs.”

And the little-bloke; quiet, studious, intense, possibly not made of real matter.

These spreads were about as developed as it got…

Supporting characters now; first up is a meddler who was even more horrible than the main characters. I might’ve pushed the androgynous, cross-dressing angle too far…
