FROM JOHN NOVAK

When Rafael and Jorge first approached me about coloring their graphic novel Giants Beware! I was so excited I guess I got a little bit carried away. Let’s take a look back at the early drafts.

MY FIRST TRY:  

Me: How’s this?

Rafael: Too Pop Art.

Me: Got it. More dramatic.  How’s this?

Raf: That’s not even color. That’s Film Noir!

Me:  Oh, I got it!  Here:

Rafael:  Seriously?

Novak: I forgot, you’re a cat person.  Okay, how about this…

Rafael: What is she – a ghoul?

Me: No, it’s an homage to Van Gogh.

Rafael: Oh. Too busy.

Me:  Waitaminute.  I got it!

Me: How’s this?

Rafael: Ahhh, just right.

In all seriousness, it was challenging and great fun to color Raf’s amazing artwork and help bring Claudette and her friends to life.
