Kekionga is thirteen years old this year (Bud and the Bugs from Dimension X was published in 2003) and while the characters have evolved as I’ve drawn them over and over for years on end, the basic art style (somewhere on the realistic side of cartoony) has remained more or less the same. But for some reason, my new minicomic ASK BUD! seemed to demand something different.
Everybody knows how much I love my mentor and First Teacher Matt Feazell and his work. I’ve even done a few stick figure experiments of my own. Could I render the characters and universe of Kekionga in stick figure form?
These first sketches, done early in the morning on the legal pad, told me the that answer, as always, was both yes and no.
To be continued.
