I wrote this last year for the "If I Could Make The World" collaboration. It was never used, but I also never posted just the music, so here it is! It's nice revisiting it.
Again, drew most of this on this train to work this morning, with a bit of quick finishing this afternoon. This is the un-inked version. I initially planned for him to be more hunched and frail looking, but I didn't have anything to reference, so he came out like this.
So, this is the inked version of Henry Adam Wood that I threw together this afternoon (the joy of having no students to teach!). I haven't used ink for years, and I was never particulary good with it, but thought i'd give it go.
*Now that i've uploaded this and seen it with new eyes, I can see that his eyes are incredibly wonky. Oops.
- The Letters (of H. A. Wood)
- Lonesome Kid
I love RyanPatrick's track and had been reading through Saintmaker's wonderful writing..it all came together.
There's quite a lot of space, I think it would be really cool to have another voice singing some verses...any takers?!
I like people one at a time
Why do you pity the lonesome kid
Haven't you seen someone
Who hates crowds before?
The heart is a muscle
I remember when mine
Used to beat quite
We need the desert environment created from the different angles and potentially animated!
We need a sound design for the desert environment! The wind, the snakes, buzzes, hisses, does the beating sun have a sound?! Make it playful and fun!
A fantastic and hilarious script written by the shot caller himself, Matt Conley!
I love the idea and style of this collab, so much so that I HAD to get involved, but i'm not really one for words, so here's my idea of what Mr Henry Adam Wood looks like. I drew this in about 30-40 minutes on the train to work this morning, which is why it's a bit messy and there are no particularly neat lines (it's also why he has a narwhal tusk for a walking stick (it was far too bumpy to draw a straight line for a regular walking stick), but then he seems like he may be the kind of man to have a narwhal walking stick). If anybody has any suggestions as to how he might be improved, or if there's anything that's been mentioned about his physical appearnce in the letters that i've missed out, i'd be happy to do other versions.
