Aqua comic strip pencils

Many years ago I was commissioned to draw a strip featuring Aqua of Barbie Girl fame.

These are the pencils for one of the two strips I drew before the publisher decided that he only wanted to pay me half the fee that I had agreed with the magazine’s editor.

After a brief argument over the phone where I was told “it doesn’t matter what my editor said I only pay XXX”, I refused to send the artwork.

I didn’t get paid but he had to scramble to find something to fill the hole in his magazine.

Needless to say, the publisher’s company didn’t last long.
