I have completed the drawings for 64 pages of my project "Zanbul"
My current project "Zanbul" (hereby referred to sans quotations) has eaten nearly all of my creative chi over the last couple of years and having 64 pages done only lets me know that there is a lot more to go.
However, 64 has a lot of meaning to me, as it is the number of hexagrams of the Taoist book of changes, the I Ching, and since the book as come to me as a jumble of images I have been arranging into 4 different stories to create the whole, the work is still largely out of order.
The goal is to create a graphic novel. Whether or not it will have words is not completely decided yet. I love to make people think, and I like the idea that the story wouldn't be limited by words, but it it reaches completion and seems incomprehensible, I'll know what to do.
The story still contains a lot that I am free to change, so without going too far into detail, I will say it travels across 4 different eras of time while focusing on a being attempting to understand her own alchemical process.
Please enjoy a few pages I am particularly proud of:
