Derry, Northern Ireland

Derry, Northern Ireland
A book I'm working on is set in this town.

Monday, August 29, 2011


Speaking of stories coming back to life, this is one -- "Coby O'...". This is another shot of "Noah" to show why Coby would go for him on a superficial level. What's going to be fun is, Noah will be straight in the book while Coby is gay. That'll make for some interesting tension, to say the least.

I have an idea of who I want to use as the guide for Coby and I posted his photo on here a while back, but damned if I can find it. He's not a bad-looking guy -- more of a goof who'd be anyone's best buddy. Trust me on this.


Found him! Preston...who's an animation student and whose work is really quite fun. He's my adorkable Coby.

During my search, I was reminded that I was going to use a different, sleeker guy as the guide for "Noah", but he was too much of a model and, to be honest, just didn't look right. Something about his face was...I dunno...ill-fitted, for lack of a better word, and his smile seems forced. I couldn't see Coby really going for him on the superficial level that's needed at the beginning of the story. This is a much better pairing.

The first pic is the look I aim for. :)

I know what you mean. However, I'd be happy if I could match the second pic.
