G is for Grimm - A to Z Character Challenge

G is for Grimm, Lady Grimm. She's a character from my magical woman comic, Good Night Mrs Goose that I worked on from about 2009 to 2011.

Grimm is a young witch who finds life to be boring. She yearns for the times of old, when magic had more presence in our life. So she and a group of other witches begin to bring storybook creatures into the real world, hoping to slowly saturate it and bring magic back to its rightful place of glory. Only Mother Goose stands in their way, but I never really got around to drawing most of that! I took a hiatus from it while I was working on my Master's degree, and never picked it back up. Mainly because my art style changed pretty dramatically. Here's a sample of Grimm from 2011.

I'd like to return to Goose one day, I still really like the premise and I think it's almost even a better fit to come out now than it was for the time. But alas, for now it must remain in my cache of ideas to one day get to.

Tools: Pentel pocket brush
Paper: Stillman and Birn gamma sketchbook
