Going back to the original art, it was kinda hard to see what the hell journalist Dante looked like. From what I could see he was a tall lanky figured bloke in a onesie. The elf-like hat & stitching on his clothing gave me a kind of Paul Kidby Disc World vibe. This story was a modern day story, but had a style set in a distant past or a fantasy look.
What I ended up with is an outfit that's a pastiche of different times. His general look and physicality was kind of combination of Russell Brand & Alan Cumming.

Months ago when I was moving stuff out of my old flat, I came across these(below). Dante's Donuts - 2short comic strips drawn by my old friend Barry Flynn back in 2006, during one of his many manic existential crises...He was that kinda bloke. Weird, surreal comedic take on Dante's Inferno.

So part of the 'Boogie script asked for a splash page of a hall full of other "exotic" vampires. To the internet!!! Did a lil' research. Found some unusual creatures. Reinterpreted them. So what we got?
