Klondike Tale Story Beats





These are the working thumbnails that may progress to finished pieces, or at lest color scripts. These are not storyboards, so ignore the camera jumps. There are many gaps as far as the story is concerned, but I hope you get the gist.

Best Friends


I don't believe that it's ever been confirmed or denied (Jeff, help me out here) that Jeff's Parlor ever was a brothel. It was however, Soapy's gambling den, bar, and home base. But for the sake of our story here, we're going to say that it's a brothel as well. I'm also not sure if the use of the dolls went outside of Skagway and the Klondike. If anyone's so interested, look up the Red Onion in Skagway-you can still buy one!

Slim-Jim Foster


I've been debating if I should post Slim but finally decided, why not? For those who know Skagway history, this might be interesting. Slim is one of 2 (as far as my story is concerned) of Soapy's sidekicks. He was also known as J.H., W.E., W.F., and probably many other aliases. Slim probably wasn't half this dorky in life, but his name alone inspired me to portray him this way.

Traditional Tlingit Eagle


This isn't as perfectly symmetrical as it should be because I sketched it free-hand. The purpose of this little exercise was to figure out the patterning on Eagle's (as human) blanket so I can start his turn-a-rounds....this should be fun...
