August 18, 2006


Back in 2002, when we were working on Even in Arcadia, Timmerryn and I decided that it would be fun to have a group portrait of the entire cast of the storyline. I drew a rough sketch of where everyone should go. Timmerryn drew his characters in the appropriate positions... and then I sat on his art for four years. While we were working on the final episodes, fatigue had set in, and I couldn't bring myself to go back to the project after the story was finished and add my art.

Four years later, the re-serialisation of Even in Arcadia on my own website at least motivated me to go back to the cast portrait, just to have something to post on the site on a Friday. I don't like starting a new storyline on a Friday. I still got the heebie-jeebies whenever I considered drawing my own characters only and splicing them together with Timm's art the way we did the story itself, so using Timm's art as a guide, I drew the full portrait from scratch. So here it is, four years late and one Wythllew short (presumably she refused to pose).
