I had originally started this book as a single piece — a small collection of characters I created using basic shapes. I had the idea of “The Seven (Un)Lucky Gods,” a group of castaway immortals, each with his own unique set of unfortunate circumstances (and unique “shield,” no less). But as each one was finished I got more excited about it, and now I’ve got the will to create a much more elaborate thing. So instead I want to present these seven as sketches, to show some of the process, which will then lead to whatever is next.
