The Ball and the Cross, revisited

I'm revisiting Chesterton's novel after several years. This time around I'm appreciating the humor and absurdity. It's really a book worth reading. Here is Evan MacIan having just crashed through the window into Turnbull's shop (Turnbull is my favorite character).

Wonderful!

I remember a LONG time ago you showing me some other sketches for a graphic novel version of the book... is it coming out of the ol cobwebs (hope hope)

Thanks guys!

Ted, this is for an illustrated edition of the book, not a graphic novel version. But the illustrated edition should end up looking pretty nice! But it's follows on my original character designs from back when I was talking about doin gthe GN version...

The book will be published by Regina Doman's Chesterton Press.
