The story's writ (pretty much), and I've been working on the paintings for the first few pages. I've done more than this but this is the only one that is Silence-friendly.
[I don't care if his folks let him stay up half the night watching fellahs getting their ears cut off or their hands trampled, I'm not gonna be the one to subject him to a bloke getting shot thru' the back of the head whilst he's on the job ... (page one btw).]
I intend that every page will have sw references included within. There's two obvious ones (?) in this bit.
I've got no idea whether it'll ever get finished (or god forbid, published) but I hope so, and even then you can self-publish these days.
Even if I manage to do a page a week it'll still take a coupla years I reckon. It'll keep me out of mischief I suppose ... mind you I'm off for a pint after this post.
Needless to say it's a suitably fucked-up story with peote-taking nuns and their orphans, amongst the more obvious sw elements. This is the annoying kid - who's a cripple mute, and there's a fair bit of blindness floating about to boot.
(There's a lot more to go on this page yet - there's a coupla frames to the left of young hopalong going up to the saloon doors, and some more stuff still to do below so there's plenty of story per page.)
Any thoughts, and can you spot the refs?
