Creator Owned Day: Empress Purandokht

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 and bodyguards

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…
