The great thing about drawing Oz is that I have plenty of pictures I could use for books. Say one of my writers mentions Jack Pumpkinhead. I could find an unused picture of him like this one and put it in the book.

That is great! And Jack looks awesome! Your art always rocks :)

You could also go the other direction and just draw a whole bunch of pictures of Ozites involved in various tasks and then have someone write a story to go around them.

John R. Neill occasionally did the same thing. He put “generic” portraits of Oz characters, or even just pretty girls, into the books where they fit, sort of. But of course nobody objects to nice pictures of old favorites.
