We have done some impeccable research and discovered that Baby Cool’s real name was Beatrix Capulet. She was perhaps Vancouver’s most famous club owner and jazz singer in the 1930s and 40s, but is now little remembered. And if you need a little refresher on Robbie Dale’s new play, check back to pages 19 … 20 … and 21. Catch up with the entire first…
Ben is back on the case, possibly missing some of his fairly important abdominal organs. Catch up with the first half of his big case right here.
More Ben Frost pages coming soon. Donna is on sabbatical and hard at work! In the meantime, here’s another piece of concept art for your amusement … earlier versions of Kitty Von Kat and Baby Cool. No doubt this image shows them yelling at Ben!
This represents Donna’s first attempt to do a Ben Frost panel in colour. Let’s just say she got better … It also represents a bit of a teaser for the second half of The Quasi-Kidnapping of Kitty Von Kat. Ben appears to get some help in his death-defying investigation.
And this brings us to the end of the first half of The Quasi-Kidnapping of Kitty Von Kat. We’ll be back with the second half beginning in early March. Donna will have plenty of time to illustrate, because … … the University of Regina is giving her a full sabbatical to work on finishing the Ben Frost project. We love you, University of Regina!…
We are back after a long Christmas break, which your authors and illustrator spent writing and plotting in various pubs and coffee shops in the Metro Vancouver area. Anyway … the break doesn’t seem to have done Ben any good. He’s looking greener than ever. The entire Quasi-Kidnapping of Kitty Von Kat can be viewed right here.
This is a pencil sketch by Donna that we thought about using on the Ben Frost home page, with Kitty and Granny Katzinski glaring at each other from the sides. Everybody else looks happy, though, so we’re using this image to say … Happy Christmas and New Year from Donna, Laurel and Robyn!
