Sketching out pencil rough for Panel 4, Page 7 - 'The Piano, Volume 2'

No sound on this one… Panel 4 of Page 7. I was excited about Volume 1 but Volume 2 is going to be magnificent! The storyline is also less narrative as the old man goes further into his recount of how things happened. I’m planning to hit that spot where images and words work together to create poetry.

Page 1, Panel 3: The Mermaid

Author, Illustrator, Graphic Novelist… adding feathers to my cap. ‘The Piano, volume 2’ is going to be fantastic. I’m really happy with how the story ends and can’t wait to have 1 and 2 in a complete book.
On another note my new novel is getting me really excited. I want people to read and love the world and characters I’m building. The story is very different to what people might expect. It was difficult to categorize ‘The Snickitysnatcher’ into a specific genre because it encompassed a few. ‘Piggie’ is going to be just as difficult to pin down. ‘The Snickitysnatcher’ is YA, it is kids lit, it is a paranormal and contemporary fantasy… it is all that. ‘Piggie’ is a fantasy, steam-punkish (and not), mythological, it is a coming of age drama, but probably above all it is simply a love story. How do I classify this? At the end of it all I just want people to read it and say they loved it. That is the most important classification of all. I love it and hope others will too.

Volume 2 of 'The Piano', well on its way.

Page 4, the first page of “The Piano, Volume 2 - The Dream”. This is a preview version of what the page will probably look like. I'm still busy with text and font elements. The book changes pace in volume two from full narration to first voice speech. The gothic (romanticism) undertones become a little more obvious in this one. After volume 2 is out, the complete graphic novel with an extra volume is being planned for release. There probably will not be any more previews after this, except for a few panels later on in the book.
