Bit of commentary from the future here, but man oh man is this hard to look at now. Scratch that. It was hard to look at when I originally drew it! Below is a cover to Ghost Squirrel‘s original pitch, back when I was trying to convince people that is was a nice and cheery kid’s show.
It’s just so… uncharacteristically friendly.
Oh well. Still has merit. Nice coloring for example. Read on for the original text that accompanied this image.
Ghost Squirrel: A supernatural action-adventure featuring Furtive Squirrel, a Private Detective and a Ghost, and his friend Intrepid Owl as they take on everyday nefariousness, and otherworldly phenomena.
Is Eminent Bull a legitimate scholar, or criminal mastermind? Who are the mysterious “Old Spirits” that haunt the woods? And will Furtive Squirrel solve the biggest mystery of them all: who wanted Furtive Squirrel…disappeared?
I’ve been working on this as a animated TV pilot pitch (and I’ve officially registered my first project with the WWGA, very exciting). I’ve been getting increasingly into comics, however, and will probably make this a comic book/graphic novel instead.
