From Short Film Script to Graphic Novella
I remember being a creative writing student in Scotland the summer of 2010, wondering how I could incorporate some of the local folklore into my work. Sometime, somehow during my research, inspiration struck and I wrote a screenplay. Two summers later, I met Laura Bramble, a talented graduate from Radford University in Southwest Virginia. When I saw Laura's illustrations, I suddenly knew I wanted my screenplay to become a comic. Together, Laura and I created Bus 900, a graphic novella about a former prop designer's battle with Alzheimer's and the confusing relationship he has with his grandson.
This past summer, I thought Bus 900 was finished and ready for publication. Yet as confident as I felt about the work, something still seemed amiss. Then I made a suggestion and Laura was generous enough to entertain me. Over the past few weeks, Laura has produced five stand-alone illustrations that complete the novella. Now I am proud to say that Bus 900 is, alas, complete.
Please follow Bus 900 on Facebook for updates.
