Mell Kelly Paper Doll
March 4, 2007 ~ 4 Comments
The first installment in the paper doll series. Eventually, I managed to fill a lot of Sundays with these paper dolls. Nice one, Lazy Weekend Shaenon! Ha Ha!
I made the paper doll clothes by tracing outfits over the drawing of Mell. Now that I have a lightbox, I could do it a lot more easily. At the time, the process involved a certain amount of guesswork.
The dress with the moon necklace was Mell’s outfit when she was a character in my high-school comic strip, “North of Space.” The superhero outfit is there because I was planning to do a Sundays-only superhero story. Technically, of course, the characters would be supervillains. I decided to do the Victorian Sunday story first, and that ended up lasting through the entire run of Narbonic, so I never got to do the supervillain story.

Aww, no superhero story?! Curse you, Jules Verne!
It’s never too late for a Narbonic Superhero story, is it?
If only some mailing list could spam her with requests…
Though, that didn’t work in the past….
Isn’t Narbonic already kind of an inverted superhero story, though?
