Play your cards right and we might get outta this thing in one piece.
One of the steps before starting work on a larger project like Voodoo Chille is to ensure the main characters have been fully explored. The interaction and contrast between Max and London are an important visual aspect that artist Pete wanted to nail.
Casey asked for some Kirby Krackle for Max’s powers that Baron Samedi had given him. Kirby Krackle is an effect used in early Marvel comics developed by the late great Jack Kirby.
No great story is complete without an Anti – Hero and “London” is ours in the Voodoo Chille story. Apparently Casey named this character after artist @plwoodscomics though as Pete is originally from Wales maybe he should have been named “Welshy”.
One of the main antagonists of Voodoo Chille is Baron Samedi. It’s due to his machinations that Max (our hero) is taken on his journey. When Designing this character we wanted to have the classical Baron Samedi look but also place him firmly in the 1960’s. We were inspired by Jim Morrison & Slash (not strictly 1960/1970’s but still cool).
