George O'Connor, Journey into Mohawk Country


This is the earliest group shot I could find that I drew of the three main characters in Journey into Mohawk Country. Notice that at this stage of the project I had not yet even decided on a drawing style for the graphic novel, these characters being depicted in a much more “realistic” style than in the final book. This sketch is also from before I had completed any research on how a Dutchmen might dress in 1634—these guys look more like New England Puritans from a century later (not too mention that they are a little too gung-ho looking). On the bottom of the page is a very early conception of the face of author and narrator Harmen van den Bogaert, barely recognizable compared to his final incarnation.
