Cirque in Progress


Do you see what I did there? Work? Cirque? … Okay, yeah, I’m pretty tired. Had a very productive day however and can safely say that two more characters are well on there way. First off, allow me to introduce you to Callista, the Bearded Beauty. I absolutely love Callista’s character. Her costume is inspired by Persian art and fashion as well as obviously burlesque. She is a thick, gorgeous woman and I love that she just oozes sex appeal while also rocking the body hair. You may be able to see I didn’t just go for the beard, she also has un-shaved underarms and thick inner eyebrows. Looking forward to colouring her and inserting her into the Cirque along with her story and center fold.

Next up we have ‘The Torso’, Miranda. When I was writing Miranda I just imagined her having this confidence and mystery (as will be shown in her story). You’re not sure what Miranda’s real story is, she never seems to tell the same story twice. She is only sure of one thing and that is no matter who you are, what you are, she is twice the woman you will ever be. I love her 1930’s hairstyle and can’t wait to introduce her to you properly in the book (Can’t show you too much in the teaser phase as I don’t want to give anything away.

Finally and pretty excitingly, I have a logo for the book, merchandise and general publicity. I actually worked on this during Birmingham MCM the other week but only just got the chance to clean it up and scan it. Thanks to Jeremy from Zombie Bears who was sat next to me throughout the con and gave his professional feedback (see how us horror Indies stick together). I also managed to pick up some A5 backing boards and plastic dust bags, so each copy of Cirque Du Mort which gets sent out will be bell protected and professionally packaged. They will hopefully all also be sealed with a sticker with this little logo on it.

logoI can also excitingly reveal that I have today applied for a batch of ISBN numbers! This is ridiculously exciting as it means I will be able to stock the Cirque Du Mort in Amazon and other online retailers as well as attempt to sell it into bookstores. If you know a local book store that likes to encourage indie creators, please send them my way. I already have a few comic stores kindly looking to stock it, but the more the merrier!
