Demon on Watch

“Demon on Watch” Copyright © 2013 John Ecko. All rights reserved.

Here is my first work from the Inn Situ Chronicles visual series. This piece takes a secondary look into the character of Kenny Marano, a Sedona police officer who is involved in an unfortunate incident involving the death of a kid while on patrol one night that changes his life forever. As a result of the death, Kenny becomes a regular nightly fixture in a shadowy corner of the Inn Situ. Kenny first appears in the story “Long Slow Train” written by Michael Raymond and is one of many stories slated for Inn Situ Volume One, nearing the end of the editing phase. This visual is directly inspired by Michael’s story.
