"A well-designed costume is a reflection of who a character is and who they want to be, conveying information to the reader without the need for exposition. An iconic look for a character also makes them instantly recognizable even when drawn by different artists or portrayed in different mediums. Costume design is a tool creators can utilize to build a world and define the culture of their stories. When designing a character, costume design is the most important storytelling element."
Includes the author's original black-and-white comic "In Plain Sight," the story of a young man who seeks out a witch in the hope of finding his one true love -- and discovers that neither the witch, nor love, is what he expected.
