a balancing act










The next image for the book.  The story of the name Valerie comes from an aborted project from a while ago – an attempt to have a go at creating a comic strip based in high school.  This character in her original form was going to be called “Val” which was not only short for “Valerie” but also “valedictorian” because she was going to be a super high-strung, anal type.  I always liked the character, and I suppose some of that personality came through in this design.  The original drawing for Val a few years ago was awful; I like the way she looks now.

And of course there’s the obligatory dog, just to fill up a blank spot.
