Character Spotlight: Ghostly Ghost

Ghostly Ghost


I have a lot of characters that live in my head. Only a small minority of them end up being used in my work while the rest swim in and out of my imagination, waiting for the chance to come to life on paper. Of course, for this little guy, coming to life would be an extra challenge since he's supposed to be dead.

The idea of Ghostly Ghost came to me a few years ago while doodling some ghosts and monsters. He's the ghost of a little known vaudevillian comedian that haunts a run-down hotel somewhere in New England. When the hotel gets bought and refurbished, Ghostly befriends the young daughter of the new owner and thus his comic adventures begin! Of course, that has yet to happen since Ghostly has only appeared in my sketchbooks thus far.

Maybe one day Ghostly Ghost will get his chance! And, if he does, I might have to work on getting him a better name!

  • I have a lot of unseen characters too. As I'm sure a lot of us do. Good to have a little bit of an outlet once in a while though, else one might explode.

  • It's fun to get a peek at GG (even if you give him a different name later); I like your back story for him, too!
