Wordless Sequence

... and knowing your character.  These are two familiar faces - Sebastian and his granddaughter, Eliza - developed for the exercise to illustrate, "I Don't Want to Travel."

The above was submitted for the Tomie dePaola contest at SCBWI.  The challenge was to create a four to six panel sequence that had a beginning, middle, and end with a character of our own invention.

Image above used a combination of collage with pen, ink, and pencil.  Below are some process shots.
