On Saturday April 23 our creative team gathered at YAYA Arts for more incredible work on Black and Blue Comics #1! After months of brainstorming their story structure they are beginning to work on illustrations. We don’t want to reveal too much, but you can expect robot deputies, Mardi Gras Indians and a fierce young woman determined to find her sister. The energy in the room was truly fire!
Here are some photos of the artists at work - they are the true heroes of Black and Blue Comics #1.
