Racing Granny= the beginning of my final project!

I am finally revealing some of the plans I have made for my great final project during the summer. It is a story of Racing Granny and her crew. Above is Granny and her main mechanich the Machine Kid.

These are sketches for Granny. She is a racing star with her self made racing vehicle(engineered by Machine Kid). I am taking my inspiration from the end of 19th century and beginning of the 20th century when lots of industrial inventions were made. In that sense the time was exciting. My stoy is totally fantasy though. Not least because my main star is an active elderly lady. Not very Victorian behaviour for a woman...

Below are sketches for Machine Kid. If Granny is the star, Machine Kid definitely is the back force behind her succes. I am consciously paring up an unusual character couple to be my main heroes. Usually active role is male dominated and so is the one of clever person. Age of my characters is unusual as well. Old women tarditionally have a role of evil stepmother or caring grandmom. Young girls are not normally the ones with brains.

Third main character of my story is Kitchen Tom. He takes the role of a carer, the one traditionally left for women.
