When I was in college, I thought I wanted to be a comic book artist. I learned that drawing comic books is VERY HARD. Eventually, I returned to doing comic strips and cartoon illustrations (my strong suits). During this period, I collaborated with a friend of mine on a novel he had written about Merlin. Here are some pencils of the opening scene of the book. Ultimately, my friend decided that the book didn't lend itself to the graphic novel format.
