"Immonarchon" and "Gods of Heights"

For a little more than a year now I've been writing a script for a graphic novel called Gods of Heights that I first began to imagine in the summer of 2009. As well as focusing on the writing, I've been working in my sketchbook to develop a style of ink drawing with which to illustrate the story. For me, this is a major departure from my usual surrealist graphite drawings but I'm hoping there will be an inherent consistency that connects these two approaches. Immonarchon is a first-draft experiment into the style of ink drawing I'd like to expand upon. It is a trial run of ink tools and techniques.
