[Alexia and co.: "Happy Memories ...Are You Sure?" - and accompanying artworks]
Since this project was started in May, last year, the artworks within are progressing well so far! It looks like (at the present time) that the story-book/ graphic novel will be divided into two main parts - one for children from primary school age upwards, and one for teens/ college /university age, upwards.... (?).
I think that as the completed pages are gathered together, things will fall into place. There are also activity pages - such as puzzles to solve. The characters/ artworks within the story, are shown in full-comic mode, part-comic mode and life-portrait (or "scan") mode.... the latter attempts to emulate as if would appear in real life.

Panels in preparation for the graphic novel. In the left of this picture, can see Alexia when she got caught-out in a heavy downpour - she is standing in the doorway of "Fiona Bee's" florist shop.... this is when she meets Fiona for the first time. These panels have also started to be used in a short animation, (more on that elsewhere!). Media used to create these images: Thick graphic art paper, art pencils, graphic art fineliner ink (water-based, permanent pigment ink), oil/ resin-based ink, water-colour pigments and high-quality acrylic paints.
