Javier character design

SOOO… It’s done…

First round reinventing of Javier from Imagined Nation…


© Aaron Shively 2011

He’s supposed to be an undisclosed age from 8 to 11 years but be a little tall. He’s a misunderstood slacker who’s actually hiding a high IQ and unconventional ambitions… He wants to be the world’s greatest monster slayer… So what if people say monsters don’t exist? They won’t when he’s done with them!

The bracers on his wrists are from his grandfather, a leather artisan who always supports Javier in his dreams and fantasies… Or are they fantasies?

When push comes to shove and Javier is thrown into the mix with real mythological beasts, those bracers exhibit some pretty incredible powers… Is Javier’s grandfather really as obliviously enabling as he seems?

You’ll find out, right after this.

-break for commercial-

JESUS christ, it’s hard holding a smile for that long… Can I get a coffee? Sharon?


Where is that intern? I swear, we hire below college graduate and we expect… What? We’re… We’re still on? Are you serious?

Ah, crap…
