Mary's Ghost

Inspired on a macabre poem by Thomas Hood, which I loved as a child, I developed a graphic novel about a ghostly mystery story set in Victorian London. As I had too many plot lines for just one adventure I returned to the idea and am currently writing a middle grade children’s book using the same characters. Below you can see some of the character development since the ideas inception. Incidentally my surname wasn’t Hood when I first began developing the idea, that became a happy accident along the way.
