Week 5 – Windy Pines Trailer Park

This week we introduce a new location: Windy Pines Trailer Park.  Windy Pines is mentioned in our first issue, Bakersfield, Earth: Evolution when Mabel describes growing up here with Judy.

We won’t be coming back here until near the end of our story, but this location plays a pivotal role in the climax.

Growing up in Kansas, I had two good friends who lived in trailer parks and I have vivid memories of visiting them. The neighborhood where I lived seemed like it never changed and I liked the idea that with a trailer home, you could literally take everything you own and move it someplace else whenever you wanted to. Like the P-Nut grill, I’m drawn to locations and communities that are in a constant state of change and evolution.

Below is the mock-up I created for Patrick to base his drawing on. I love the elevated angle he chose because it reminds me of the famous cornfield scene in Hitchcock’s North by Northwest.
