Comics are for Kids! (part 2)

Here are 2 cover images, drawn last year. These were drawn for a couple of proposed graphic novels to be written by talented toronto writer/cartoonist Brian Mclachlan. If you haven't already seen his work, you can check out the link to his wickedly hilarious strip the Princess Planet to get an idea of his dementia, er, genius.

Anyway, we were trying to come up with some ideas for self-contained graphic novels aimed at younger readers. Brian came up with all the concepts, characters and storylines and I drew up these sample covers to help pitch the idea. Unfortunately, nothing came of it, as the pitches seemed to get lost in the shuffle of both our packed schedules. Still, I thought it'd be fun to post these here. I'll leave it to you to determine what's going on in the drawings...or perhaps Brian will post an explanation himself...?
