At last the flu seems to be packing its bags and leaving town! Ryan returned to work today, and I happily returned to the book project I have been working on. Neither of us can quite shake the cough, but the chills, aches, and sore throats are gone thankfully!
While I was ill I passed the time drawing cartoons of an eccentric little gypsy family. I thought I would share the characters here, though I hesitate to show the comics themselves just yet (they are quite silly).
Here are some of the Hawkers, a close knit family of traveling criminals and fortune tellers. This NOT to say all gypsies are criminals and fortune tellers, far from it. However this particular family certainly is.
|Grandma Hawker and her pet owl Hickory|
|Mama Hawker. I gave three of the Hawkers a white|
streak in their hair. Each carries a psychic ability.
|The triplets: Salem, Peter, and Ivan.|
Ivan has the white streak in his hair and so he's psychic.
And incidentally, he's somewhat evil compared to his other triplets.
|Vesper Hawker, the teenage daughter of the clan.|
She's from Mama Hawker's first marriage.
|Pilot Hawker, a somewhat awkward young teen|
with an affection for keeping rats as pets.
|Clover Hawker, an adorable albino child.|
A favorite of Grandma's.
|Every family needs a drifter uncle, and Offal is the Hawker's.|
|I couldn't resist throwing a cute baby in there. Just because.|
What an amazing world you are creating! Looking forward to reading about their adventures :)ReplyDelete
