I wondered which villain in the Gum Girl universe it would be easiest to create a costume for. I decided on Caesar Salad. A few items of veg, an ivy wreath, a pair of flip-flops, an old bed sheet and voila!
I also like the lad in the helmet (inspired by the musicians in Daft Punk) and the Octopus Prime outfit. He's either very handy with a needle and thread or one of those kids whose parents always "help" them with their homework.

In the end the story was about a non-uniform day which gave me plenty of fun in drawing a variety of Gum Girl costumes.

Unlike Pigment Princess I got the character design for Mime Man right first time.
Here he is in classic "trapped in an invisible box" pose. Or is it, "I'd like an envelope this size,"
Here's a lovely review of Gum Girl: Music, Mischief and Mayhem! from the
fine people at Forbidden Planet.

Pigment Princess went through a couple of designs until I got her right. This is my first attempt. I liked the colour wheel shield and kept that throughout but the rest needed some work.
Gum Girl: Music, Mischief and Mayhem! is now out.

Out August 1st ... let's cut to the blurb:
The town of Catstrophe has been infiltrated by three ne'er do gooders once again! In the first story a mime artist has cast a balloon of silence preventing any noise whatsoever - no music, no laughter, no bird song. Mime man has wiped out all the good noise as well as the bad. So Gum Girl retaliates in super gummy style! In a second adventure Grace notices that all the colour is draining out of objects (including herself!). Bemused and alarmed, she follows the disappearing trail of colour to none other than ... Pigment Princess! The outrageous Pigment P wants to control the colour scheme of all in Catastrophe! Someone has to stop her! And at a Fancy Dress Day at Calamity Primary, the school is sabotaged by Stick Man - an ex-counterfeiter of banknotes who accidently slipped into the photocopier during one of his scams and became who he is today. His special skill: copying himself. His mission? to erase all individuality. Gum Girl has her own ideas about everything becoming the same and sets about wiping out his crazy plans.
As usual I'll be posting behind the scenes art and other goodies in the lead up to the release. See you tomorrow!

Page three of Roller Grrlz from Gum Girl: Countdown to Destruction. Cats, roadworks and rocket boosted roller skates can never end well.
Here's the layout for the page. Panel six contained a feeble gag that was removed for being feeble.

As Gum Girl says, "Uh, oh. Built in rocket boosters?"

The book is out today. Yay! Here's the rough version of the cover. Making covers is fun so I tend to do a few different versions and then we choose which will work best.

I just received my early proof copy of Gum Girl book 3 and it looks awesome! It has my fave cover
yet (thanks to Mark and Ben, design heroes) and the poppiest colours. As you an see, they make
a great set. I can't wait until the book's out on March 7th.
