Martian Debut is my first properly written story. I started with an outline, which was expanded into prose. I worked with Liz Weintrob to then edit my work into the narration found in the comic.
I then storyboarded the whole story in a sketchbook, which I used as a guide to photograph models, props, cityscapes and any other reference I needed. Each element was drawn, inked and scanned into the computer separately. Panel layouts were made in Adobe Illustrator and all the panels and pages were put together in Photoshop.
Family and friends modeled for various characters. This 36-page comic was first self-published in 2010.
