Part one of an assignment for Visual Storytelling class. I chose to Visually design Katherine Dunn's amazing novel, Geek Love. characters shown here are Arturo, Olympia, Iphigenia/ Electra, and Chick. I hope I did Dunn's characters justice... I still cringe at the texture use on Oly's dress so perhaps I'll repaint her some other day. Maybe.

I love this! I have been reading the book, and the characters and their personas have been consuming my thoughts, so I yearned to see them "come to life," as it were. So I did a google search and found this, in lieu of a major motion picture that would probably have ruined it for me. Of course everyone's visualization of what they look like is going to be different, but I loved seeing your interpretation. I am so glad you did this!
I love that book so much! My heart broke for Oly, and especially for Chick. Arty was such a bastard, and the twins were so interesting. (Am I right in assuming the one on the left--my left, their right--is Iphy and the one on my right/their left is Elly?
