Author’s Early Story Sketches

The author was asked by readers to include a page, which showed the sketches he drew for the stories, especially in the New Earth miniseries.  Here they are, close to the order that they follow each other, in the New  Earth miniseries.  While the author will agree they are not great works of art by themselves, they were necessary at the time, to evolve the body of the story.  Sometimes sketching had to be done, before the story could continue.   The professional artwork in the books now follows these initial sketches.

Kuro chan and the artwork

The image here is of the author’s little Bombay Black cat, which inspired some of the stories involving the Martian black feelup, known by the same name as Kuro, which is simply Japanese for black.  Kuro (or Kuro chan, as chan means miss – Miss Black in Japanese) would always get interested when the author was writing, editing, or sketching.  Below are the early illustrations sketched by the author.  Kuro chan, as she is known to the author, and all her many friends is the inspiration and muse for the authour in the Captain Kuro From Mars series.  In the image here Kuro chan is inspecting the very first images the author drew for galactic fighters.
