Five Years In The Making

P. CRAIG RUSSELL: Put the finishing touches on the final page of my comics adaptation of The Giver yesterday, a project that’s taken about five years (interrupted by The Graveyard Book). I don’t always work in sequence, so this final page is from Chapter 20. Working with Galen Showman. I did layouts, he did blue pencil ‘pencilling’ and I did pencil ‘inking’ and ink wash. The bicycle at the bottom is entirely Galen’s——he has a genius for meticulous mechanical detail. And aren’t I happy about that?
