I drew today’s Google Doodle celebrating Leo Tolstoy’s 186th birthday. Big thanks to Ryan for the assignment, to Sophia for assistance with parallaxing and other complicated things, to the engineers/programmers who made things move and to everyone who liked it and wrote nice things to me!
Here’s the full interactive version if you missed it on the homepage (you can drag the scenes instead of clicking to see the transitions better).
And here’s an illustrated blogpost about the process (as usual, I did it with my demented method of inking everything separately).
PS. I’ll use this opportunity to plug my debut graphic novella (In A Sense) Lost & Found which is out today. Coincidence?! Yes.
Zainab Akhtar called it in a Publishers Weekly review "an utterly immersive beauty." She’s usually right about everything.
This Google doodle was awesome, the things you did with the layering were fantastic!
