During the development process for this graphic novel, Jon Proctor turned out an amazing variety of sample pieces. Some of these were intended to help us place the book with a publisher; some were character studies; and still others were just exercises in color and design.
Here are a few of them.
An early, very noirish study of Shadrach and Vida, his girlfriend.
A scene from the book, isolated with no background and high-contrast color.
Vida in "Flaunt" magazine. Note the bar code -- Proctor, master of detail!
Watch the skies...
