On the First Day Of Christmas, Evil gave to me…
The Gang in a bunch of cartoons!
Some early concept art for the characters. With less emphasis on the word ‘art’ than I’d like, but when it comes to drawing my skills are sketchy at best! Click on each for a larger view, by all means. The Hatchling, I think, is the one character who remains closest to my original concept for him, although even he is more colourful than I’d first envisaged.
Readers, whether artistically inclined or no, feel free to visualise the characters for yourselves in your imaginations or on paper, as it’s safe to say that the subjective experience of a reader is as essential an ingredient of any story as the writing itself. In that sense, we writers can ultimately only do half the job ourselves! :-)
And any artists out there, if you feel inspired to craft your own character portraits of the Evil gang, I’d love to see them.

Merry Christmas, Part One.
