This was the first page of WTL that I drew. I had no idea what the story was at the time.  I just had, if I recall correctly, this picture in my head of a young boy crawling up from the side of a cliff. I was also at a really slow one-day convention and didn’t have anything else to do, so boredom was partially a catalyst.

Some of you may have seen this page, and some of the next few, on my website about a year or so ago. I did 5 or 6 pages at that time and figured out the coloring scheme I wanted for them. People seemed to like the art style, and it was interesting to see the stories people came up with as they tried to figure out what was going on. No one was right of course, but it was interesting.
