An extract of work in progress, my cartoon book Cass and Edmund. Cass and Professor Gilagesh’s dragonfly hunt is going from bad to worse by the minute…


Overboard !

Overboard !

An extract from work in progress, my cartoon book Cass and Edmund.  Cass and her neighbour Professor Gilagesh are on the trail of some unusual dragonflies, but soon things are not quite going according to plan . . .

After the Dragonflies !

After the Dragonflies !

Another page of Cass and Edmund completed today!  Cass and Professor Gilagesh set out down river  to find the dragonflies …

I thought I would post  a couple of preliminary sketches for one of the panels just for the record.  I had difficulty deciding on the colour of the canoe!  If the final colour scheme resembles  the French flag’s bleu, blanc, rouge, this wasn’t intentional – consciously at least !  I was thinking of what would work best with the  pages to come (without giving away too many secrets!).


Professor Gilagesh, I presume?


So today I thought I would finish colouring in page 12 of my comic book Cass and Edmund as I’ve been getting back into the swing of things lately …

However I made the mistake of quickly checking over the previous pages first….

Aaggh!  Why had I not spotted before that the collar on the professor’s shirt wasn’t quite right, and where was his left arm? And what about his beard?

I just had to redo this major error, before I could do anything else….  And the hoovering will just have to wait another day…

I’ve now more or less completely convinced myself I’ve got Asperger’s syndrome.  No joking!

HMH Bluna is currently engaged on a Graphic Novel marathon.

Cass and Edmund tells the story of a young girl called Cass who goes chasing dragonflies, but finds something else entirely…

Here’s HMH Bluna settling into the flow:
