Fables wasn't a series I followed at all. The deconstruction of Fables and Mythology is old hat as it were to a child from the 70's. Writers began the deconstruction during that period and so it was familiar territory. To do these pages I read some of the books. I tried several techniques in doing these pages which I failed at miserably, but only in retrospect. Two page spreads are difficult. I laid the pages out, printed the layouts, then drew the pages separately. Bad choice. My understanding of perspective is getting better and I push myself pretty hard to try new angles and shots, working on developing skills rather than playing it safe. Because of that there are mistakes and failures. This two page spread was a failure and not representative of what I am capable of doing. Perhaps if I perfected playing it safe and get more comicbook work under my belt and experimenting in my own time or on my own projects I would get some pencilling work?

I am getting out some of the ideals, that I have had over the years. This was one such story and I have four versions based on the various versions of the LSH.
