Darren Rawlings is a friend I met through the wonderful world wide web. At first, I only knew about his own cool art and comic work, but when another friend of mine revealed his own book trailer, I found out Darren had another incredible talent for video effects and animation. Darren is also the creator of Agent Orange, who may be one of my new favorite characters. When I first approached him, there was a real willingness and excitement to participate in this project. That was a huge bonus! When someone is excited about their work as I believe it shows, and Darren is evidence of that with this beautiful illustration of his Letter V. The Volta river is a major river in Ghana and runs down to the largest reservoir in the world, Lake Volta.
Darren Rawlings (or “Rawls” as he is more commonly known) is the owner/creative director of Thinkmore Studios.
