IF - Rescued by a cockroach



The idea for my first picture book arises from my fascination of a superhero cockroach. This is how he looks like when called to action. No frills, just his trusted mask to shield his identity.

wonderful work gavin. your brushstrokes are beautiful and i love the use of the duotone too. i think your character here would make a delightful children's book!

your hand lettering is very nice too :)

He looks so familiar... If he'd just take off that mask... I'm sure I know this guy! Great stuff Gavin! Like the idea and you've come up with a great little character. I can see this as a book or even a series. Go for it my friend! Happy Easter!
