My name is Kelly Delahanty. I'm a recent graduate of the New Media program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I make comics, illustrations, animations, infographics, videos and other stuff. I'm interested in storytelling, new media, social media, and digital communities and culture. This is my blog for doodles, works-in-progress and general thinky-thoughts.
I picked up Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: The Graphic Novelthe other day, despite never having read the novel. Normally I’d avoid reading an adaption of a book before reading the book, especially a book I was actually interested in reading, but Cassandra Jean's art was just so absolutely breath-taking I couldn't help it. I really love the inks and colors in the book and thought I'd experiment a bit…Maybe something for a more 'mature' comic….
I have a bunch of ideas for longer webcomics right now and I can decide which one to focus on. In the course of redrawing the cast for Made Monsters I probably went back and forth every five seconds one whether or not I could see myself drawing and writing these people for the foreseeable future. Still not sure… :[ I think I’ll attempt to draw the main cast from each possible comic and see where that takes me.
