A mighty “Hullo!” to St. Patrick and Winchester Thurston students. If you find the first two pages interesting, please subscribe to email notification so that you won’t miss any new posts. I look forward to your comments, so don’t be shy. I’d like to hear your thoughts on the appearance of Burrell, the look of the location, and for those of you with sharp eyes tell me of any inconsistencies from one page to another… for example, if Hecock’s shoes have 6 buttons in one frame, but have none in the next. With the hundreds of frames that I will be drawing, it is most likely that I’m going to miss a few details! Thanks for helping with my project and I hope you enjoy the story.
So glad you are joining me in the writing and illustrating of Hecock, the historical fiction steampunk graphic novel. For the next several months, I’ll be posting bits and pieces of the novel, looking for a little feedback. Then on that much awaited 100th anniversary of the real life event of Burrell Hecock and the ice bridge over the Niagara River, I will begin to release the finished pages, one by one. The plan is to have the print version of the book published by 2013. In the mean time, enjoy the webcomic version and feel free to make comments!
