Young Maybelle Carter

I've been working on a graphic novel with collaborator Frank Young -- a biography of The Carter Family. Here are two panels in the process of being inked. This sequence is where teenager Maybelle Addington shows her guitar-playing prowess to A.P. and Sara, and Poor Valley's fiddling mailman, Price Owens.

To keep up with the graphic novel's progress, check in at the Carter Family Comics blog...
