I figure there are a couple of options available to me this month, which is Graphic Novel month.  I can do a collection of one-off strips like the one below (which took me about 5 or 6 hours), or something longer with a narrative arc.

Strips are easier for readers to dip in and out of, but it might be quite hard going to think of and draw something new every day.  Longer stories are more work for all concerned but at least if I have one idea and run with it there’s less pressure because I can essentially storyboard and get on with it.  Also I have been saying ‘graphic novel’ all year, not ‘collection of comic strips’…

Such trials and tribulations I face, doesn’t it make your heart bleed?!
I have a couple more Unlikely Heroes in mind, but your suggestions are welcome. I thought it might be passingly amusing to include the little kid in all of them somewhere, although that probably isn’t very practical.

If I do something narrative it might be black and white in the first instance just for the sake of saving time, although I prefer working in colour as a general rule.  Watch this space…
