2010 was a crap year for getting work done on Oz Squad. It was a crap year for getting much art done period but the Squad suffered the most. This sketch is one of the threads I’m finally picking up after far too long. It’s a piece of a project that Steve handed me last year and I dropped after getting just a tenth of the way into it.
My hope is that 2011 will be the year I finally finish the outstanding Squad projects and get new ones moving. I also hope that the earth doesn’t get hit by an asteroid and that all bad men come to bad ends.
I meant to scan this piece in the sketch stage but forgot so we’ll get started here with the inks. This is the Scarecrow, the first companion that Dorothy picked up on her journey to see the Wizard. He’s been through a lot of hard times since Dorothy pulled him down from his pole. He’s been through a lot of good times as well. He hasn’t forgotten either.
