Lenny’s Summer Job issue #1

Lenny’s Summer Job is an ongoing comic created regularly in my sketchbook and in early 2013 it was also self-published as a comics zine. Originally the story and characters were created in 2011 as an animated show pitch. After letting the concept juices marinate my brain for a while, the whole thing reemerged in the summer of 2012 much better formed. I had characters, their relationships and a whole world imagined where lots of funny, fun stories could be told, so I’ve set about drawing an introductory comic that tells the story of Lenny arriving at his Aunt and Uncle’s lighthouse in which all the main characters are introduced.

Here are the sketchbook comic pages that are in issue #1 of Lenny’s Summer Job:

Here is some of the older art I had sketched out as part of the initial Lenny idea:
