george O'Connor, Journey into Mohawk Country
These are the style sheets I made for the three main characters of Journey into Mohawk Country as I began working on the book. The first is a “before” shot, depicting Harmen, Jeronimus and Willem at the outset of their journey. The second is an “after”, with the three Dutchmen showing all the wears and tears of their winter trek through what is now New York State. They’ve lost some things, and gained some others. These shots are the alpha and omega. Artwise, I gradually brought them from the clean cut image in the before shot to the ragged, but wiser, final image.
