The Mysterious Penguins in: The Mysterious Box

The Mysterious Box

Throughout history, ideas across the world have the potential to create something beautiful or devastatingly dangerous. What would happen if something with unknown and untapped potential fell into the hands of some innocent skating penguins? This is the Mysterious Box.
(will be adding the story for pre order- working with KDP)

Project History

This story started as a class assignment in Spring 2012 in one of my Computer Graphics classes. I was supposed to create the whole comic in Adobe Illustrator. It was not an easy task and I have an overactive imagination. I do not make things easier on myself. I'm a little over-ambitious when it comes to creative projects. Just like so many other projects- when I finished the class, the work had only just begun.

The original idea is a message of peace. The penguins are minding their own business until they find a box. Everyone wants this box except for one person. The penguins end up giving that one person their box and everything ends up peaceful.

 

I've gone back to this project again and again- I love my penguin pals I just love their dog-like design. I can't believe I came up with it- characters were not usually my thing- except for lizards. I was studying 'Wallace and Gromit' at the time and I guess the dog inspired me. I just recently found some inspiration to add words to it (Thank you 'Nightmare Before Christmas'!!) and it actually stitches everything together. I am repainting the panels and redrawing the characters. This story will soon be available for purchase on Amazon!
