  1. And another mystery is born! Brilliant writing and drawing as ever Cheryl and I can’t wait to see how this piece fits into the puzzle…

  2. Superb sketches as always Cheryl. You’re an amazing artist. You’re also an amazing writer and I look forward to more of Juba’s story.

  3. Hi Cheryl! Fantastic drawing. I love Juba’s understated cool and the fact that he keeps his magic kit in his rucksack. Can’t help thinking this is not going to turn out well…

    1. Hi Richard, thank you, yes I’m really excited about telling you a bit more of Juba’s story (pre Floating Asylum) Glad you like the drawing, and Juba is effortlessly cool 😀 He’s one of my favourites, in fact he’s the type of guy,(if he were real that is) who you’d probably stop to take a photo of for one of your street portraits)

  4. The writing has action, but action in the image may draw more eyes. Writing in first person perspective is risky with so many jumps from character to character. I admire your talent but I still think you can expand your audience base. My criticism isn’t aimed to hurt. Just my thoughts. Even if your sexiest girl is a guy; the sexy will draw eyes.

Keep it alive...
