This was one of the first pages I drew.
Yes, it is a homage to a shot in ‘The Beach’, where the ceiling fan turns into helicopter blades, and yes, even though I much preferred the book, the film was fun too.
The drawing style in the graphic novel jumps around a bit, because it took me about 2 years to complete it, and was drawn with pencil and pen on paper.
Which means what you see is what you get, and correcting ‘mistakes’ is hard. But it gives it a more ‘natural’ feel too, and now I have 150 x A3 inked pages to hang on my walls…
