8: Let The Sketching Begin

On September 13, 2011, Staake sketched out in a red copywriter's pencil the entire 118 frame, 40 page book that measured 13" x 5". In the drawings for Bluebird, he intentionally left details out of the sketches. "When I sketched the book", says Staake, "I wanted to establish a basic road map for the story. When I would later sit down to create the final artwork, these sketches would provide me with a general idea of where I had to graphically go with the story, but I'd give myself room to experiment and take some chances when rendering the details of the final scenes in grays and blues."
