Portrait of Jonas

Jonas Sketch

See, I have this vision of starting up a website where I write my story accompanied by pictures (kind of a graphic novel), and then sell the novel, graphic novel, poster-quality images, etc. to those people who want them. I figure it’s a way of me doing what I want to do and maybe making  a little pocket money from it. In order to do that, though, I need to get a heck of a lot better at drawing – in particular, drawing efficiently.

I hope this picture is a sign that I am on my way. It’s meant to be a representation of what my character, Jonas, might look like.




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.

    Good job! You’re very talented! I wish I could draw.

    Jonas has had a bad night, though.


      Thank you for your comment. I appreciate being commended by a Martian. Wow, intergalactic compliments.
      A rough night? Indeed. But, we can forgive him. His parents were assassinated when he was only a child, and only last year his pregnant wife was murdered by his half-brother. He has a lot to feel down about.

Wanna talk about it?
