Battle Pug started as a webcomic by long-time comics illustrator and Chicago local, Mike Norton. It now lives, breathes, and snorts as a beautiful hardback trade published by DarkHorse.
This piece was created using technical pen on Bristol. The figures were colored with Copic Markers, and the background with watercolor inks and acrylic fine lining. In the ongoing epic, a tale-within-a-tale is spun by the lovely Moll, who entertains her furry companions with a story of war, vengeance, and magic. I used this inspiration to create a surrealistic shadow puppet narrative, with swirl and design motifs that mirror our heroine's.
