George O'Connor, Journey into Mohawk Country

Mohawk_country_middleharmen

When last we checked in on the evolution of the appearance of Harmen van den Bogaert, he looked more like a character from a Marvel Comic than Journey into Mohawk Country. This drawing represents something of a quantum leap in his design. His initial depictions were a bit distant and remote—this was my very conscious decision to give him some much needed personality. I obviously don’t “feel” him 100% just yet—he looks more cocky and pompous than the final version. As I worked on this book over the months my impressions of the Dutch explorers softened and changed: originally distant, then buffoonish and pompous, and finally, to some likeable guys who were in over their heads.
