Production On The Artwork For LADY SATAN Has BEGUN!
This is a moment that I've been looking forward to for a little while now. I finally get to say that the longest part of making 'LADY SATAN: AN ANGEL IN A KILLERS DRESS' has begun. Illustrating the 80 interior pages of the book.
When I began developing this book and through the writing process for this book I couldn't decide whether the book should be in black and white or colour. I prefer books to be in black and white. However, I do get how adding colour to a book can do amazing things for the story. And either way, the book has to be illustrated in black and white first, even if the book is released in colour.
However, as I move forward with illustrating this book, I think it's becoming more and more clear to me that this book needs to be in black and white. It's a noir-style revenge thriller so having the book in black and white just adds to the story more than colour in my opinion.
Now, as always I reserve the right to change my mind later on. I don't think that I will change my mind but stranger things have happened. So, for now, I will say that the book will be entirely black and white.
It's still early days yet and illustrating 80 pages is a bigger task than illustrating a 24-page issue. But what works in my favour is that the book is divided into ten chapters that each consist of eight pages. And that will help make the long process of illustrating the book easier for me.
The synopsis for 'Lady Satan: An Angel In A Killers Dress' is as follows:
"After surviving being in a snuff film, Lucille Fourrure (A.K.A. LADY SATAN), a stripper turned vigilante from France finds herself on British soil. She has travelled from town to town taking down criminals in the hopes that she will one day find the man responsible for her past ordeal. An ordeal that left her with P.T.S.D. (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and P.G.A.D. (Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder) as well as an appetite for revenge.
But when LADY SATAN finds the location of the man responsible for her traumatic past, she discovers that he is a high ranking police officer named Chief Inspector Bennett who is under investigation by internal affairs. Feeling incapable of bringing him down, LADY SATAN is reluctant to exact her revenge upon him. Until she finds evidence that links Chief Inspector Bennett to several unforgivable crimes. Now LADY SATAN must battle her anxiety, doubts, crippling P.T.S.D. and her debilitating P.G.A.D. in order to exact her revenge upon Chief Inspector Bennett.
Will LADY SATAN be able to exact her revenge upon Chief Inspector Bennett? Or will she be put behind bars before she has a chance?
It's still undetermined how the book will be distributed and by who, as well as the specific release date for the book. But once I know, I'll be sharing that information with everyone who wants to know.
Until Next Time: Take care of yourselves, take care of each other and stay awesome!
