Der Clobbermeister

So I skipped few days. Got some pretty urgent deadlines to tend to this week. Here's a quick sketch of something I was working on in my book yesterday. I've always loved the Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales. One of my favorites is the story of the Six Soldiers of Fortune. Read it. Nifty, imaginative tale, and Terry Gilliam made and equally wonderful film revolving around a similar storyline (The Adventures of Baron Munchausen). Anyways, I recently pondered the possibility of revisiting this as a picture book of sorts, yet in my own twisted, crushed, minced, and blown-up way. This character "Der Clobbermeister" would more than likely play the part of the Strong Man. Of course my version is a wild little red-haired girl at the helm of a frightfully powerful steam-powered behemoth. Exciting.
