Rhythm of the War Drums


Last week I got the idea for a story surround child soldiers.  This week, after spending time bouncing ideas around with my buddy Sal, I have decided that I'm moving ahead with that idea.  I am insanely excited about the potential and will be working on this in my spare time (meaning at night when I'm not drawing Wizard of Oz.)

I will writing it, and drawing some parts.  I hope to be able to convince some of my buddies in the industry to be apart of it and will also be reaching out to some new talent that I've been keeping an eye on for the last few years.  

I'm not going to say much as this idea is still very fresh and I'm sure like most things, tons of it will change during the process.  I don't know if this is even the title yet, but it really struck something in me today.  So, for now, this is the temp title.   

More later.

Yes.
Time to stretch your writing legs? Time to get a little political?
Go forth, I am excited to see this.

Len Diggity said...

Awesome. Full steam ahead man! I think it's awesome your going to give your own stuff a valid shot of being something real. You've got my support!

JonBoy said...

Oh man, this is a really killer idea ... I think it would really expose alot of people to what's going on around the world ... think of countries like Africa or even South America, were young men are turned into heartless killers. They are enslaved mentally and many of them only cause of escape is death ... my hat goes off to you Scottie!!!

Jim Di Bartolo said...

Awesome! Dig the concept and look forward to seeing where it goes. I really like the title too. Solid.

Fantastic. Really happy to hear you're going whole hog with this by writing and drawing it. Can't wait to see the end product.

Rick Lacy said...

Wicked idea, Skottie! This piece for Child Wars is exceptionally moody. Really cool work.

I know you like to read real books and I wanted to recommend, based on your new idea, "A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier" by Ishmael Beah. It was pretty incredible. Almost as if Cormac McCarthy's "The Road", which I think you quit reading, happened to a 12 year old in Africa. Amazing true story of what the life of a child soldier is really like. Might be good research material.

Very neat concept. I'm excited.

However, I think that you should keep the title short and sweet, such as "Coming of Age" by itself or something.

Scott said...

Very cool - your progress over the last year (artistically and in terms of branching out subject matter etc) has been a pleasure to watch. Looking forward to see this...

I'd love to be a part of this project in some way, being as you're reaching out to other talents. I've been working in comics since 04, but I've yet to have that "breakthrough role"...just check out my website at www.dustinevans.biz for samples. Just drop me an email if you're interested.

Either way, if I get in or not, the project sounds cool. Love the new image.
