I would like you to introduce you to Missy Ann and her Hogboons. The world has not been so kind to Missy. She lost her parents. How and why I have not really determined, but she now lives with her Aunt or Uncle, or maybe both. They have moved out of the city to a rural area. Her caregiver(s) moved them into an old farm-house that was rather empty except for 3 items, a broom, a small bucket and a balloon that was left behind from a realtor’s open house party.
Either due to an act of a lonely child’s imagination, God sending her 3 childlike angels or old fairy folk that have never grown up, she is no longer alone. Missy Ann now has three best friends. These little Hogboons are mischievous. They are a mix of The Marx Brothers, Abbott and Costello with any of the old-time monsters and the 3 Stooges, but they love Missy.
I have had this idea for a while. Originally the Hogboons where going to be a ghost, a Frankenstein monster and the Jersey Devil made out of an old curtain, a garbage can and a broom. It is a mix of all the things I like, examples are Calvin and Hobbies, the above said comedians and My Neighbor Totoro.
I do not know if I will turn this into a little comic for this blog. I will try, but no promises.
