So quite some years ago Jason Turner started a little thing called the Page 100 Project. Essentially the gist was that you took the 100th page of a novel and you illustrated it as a comic-book page. I did a couple of these back in 2010 and semi-recently I’ve been doing one-off illustrations from the 100th page of books I’ve been reading but I think I’d like to start work on these again.
This is from the Star Trek novel Engines of Destiny and I have no idea about what’s going on here apart from Data collapses and a weird small Klingon ship appears and then blows up.
Seven years is a long time, this was when I was going through my comic book illustration phase, where I was working towards being a much more traditional style comic book illustrator. It never really felt right so it’ll be interesting to see how much my current wabi sabi minimalist approach translates. I’ve done a couple of short five-page things and I think it works but then I suspect my style is an acquired taste and not for everyone.
The first one up is going to be The Dark Tower book one – The Gunslinger. Do I go with movie versions or make up my own impressions!
