So, Ray Zhang… I’ve mentioned him before. He’s an artist who wants to do a comic and is looking for a writer. Lucky for Ray, I know just the guy… me.

Now that I have Ray on the team, the first thing I do is hand him the So-Called Living script, and see what he can do with it. The outcome was both good and bad. You see, Ray’s style isn’t really suited for SCL, it’s got an old Japanese anime style to it, which is cool, just not a good fit for this script.

When I tell Ray what I think, he tells me he understands, and wants to learn how to draw a little more “Westernized” style of comic (FYI: He’s from China), to which I replied, “Don’t you dare!” I love the old school anime Ray brings to the table, so I tell him that I’m going to write up a new story that would best suit his style and interests, and that this can be a story we collaborate on.  Ray’s all excited.

The images I’ve attached are some rough samples of Ray’s work.

More character concepts from Jamie Riehl. Just a head shot so far, but I’m sure we’ll get a look at those gams any day now.

When ask “Got anything you would like to say about the Jill concept?”

Jamie responded “She has great “spirit” ? lol …no not really, i know her very little thus far”

The second character sheet I worked on was Jill. She’s a bit of a bitch.
