Belfast-based artist Stephen Downey came up with the idea of designating March 1st “Creator Owned Day”
As he explains on his blog:
“A lot of reader and creator focus is on characters owned by larger corporations. Let’s bring a little spotlight on creating brand new, creator owned concepts.”
So in that spirit, here’s another look at a character from my upcoming graphic novel series Persia Blues, created in partnership with my friend, artist Brent Bowman:
Empress Purandokht was one of only 2 female rulers of the Persian empire, and she will play a prominent role in the series.
More to come…
