Process Sketches and Cultural Appropriation
Hello everyone, happy February. It’s been a brutally cold one this year and I’ve been feeling it heavily.
Lately I am entrenched in scripting and world building a long form webcomic to be launched this spring! Here are some process sketches of that project. I feel drawn to developing characters from a different cultural background than my own, it’s a hairy business. I have to be very careful not to appropriate another culture for aesthetic reasons.
That said, it’s wonderfully rewarding to realize the bountiful resources of different ideas, clothing styles, architecture, and art that our world creates. Using and understanding that knowledge makes us more well rounded creators. I hope that my storytelling can unite some of these ideas in interesting ways.
