Kurse komes together

GETTING the Kurse proposal together continues apace with sketches of the story's main and secondary characters all completed by artist Chris Simmonds (with his permission I might post a few here at some point soon). I've now sent Chris the first 10 pages of script and I'm sure that will be keeping him busy for the next couple of months. I have high hopes for my collaboration with Chris as he got what it is I'm trying to do with Kurse straightaway and has already brought quite a few of his own ideas to the table.

I've heard from a few artists who are interested in collaborating with me on further pitches and they're all really good. Unfortunately, none of them has an art style that would suit the particular stories I'm working on. After all, it's pointless having an artist with a light cartoony style working on a black-hearted alien invasion story full of death, misery and violence. My search continues...

Cool – I'll be sure to look out for it sometime in 2020. ;-)

ever the optimist.

jamie said...

have i misinterpreted that post,or do you have a post-apocalyptic alien invasion type story?
there was a 'walking dead' style alien invasion aftermath book out a while ago...
i'd love a crack at something like that...
but more along the lines of that vidoe game,the name of which escapes me for now...

I am working on an alien invasion story but it's more about what happens when the aliens have been chased off. What's left, who is in charge and how horribly paranoid would they be about more visitors from the stars turning up and causing trouble?

jamie said...

i'll... er... do some samples?

What time? I headed off to work around 3.20pm. Was Jen's car there? If so, she might have been in the garden with Dyl. If not, she was probably fetching Connor from nursery.

jamie said...

she was very polite and patient,though.
