2005? Karl and Vasek


I started this comic several years ago about two brothers named Vasek and Karel inspired by the works of Czech brothers Karel (writer) and Josef (artist) Capek.  I drew the comic in a whimsical style borrowing some elements from Josef Capek. The story was based on a dream I had about a magical princess who could change her shape.  Well, I shan't say more lest I ruin the story!  Actually, I have only finished four pages and am at a stand still.  But I am quite found of this little story and the pages I have inked and lettered so when I find the time I will try to finish the rest and try to make my first comic book in three or four years (?I'm not really keeping count) after I redraw and revise the pacing in 'Finland Sardines'.  The book will be comics that children can read.

The challenge thus far has been trying to keep the story interesting, but after a period of some odd years, I would like to believe that my drawing skills have improved so perhaps it will not be as diffiult as it was several years ago to finish the story.  I hope to pick this up someday soon since I believe wholeheartedly that it can be something beautiful once I complete it.
