The Curious Saga of No-One pt2

Written on August 5, 2013 at 1:19 pm, by Doug Lefler


Part Two of The Curious Saga of No-One has been released on the Scrollon app for the iPad.

I began this is a story before Seven Extraordinary Things, when I was between directing jobs and tired of writing screenplays and drawing storyboards. Earlier versions of the art can be found on this post from

A preview of The Curious Saga of No-One (in the Scrollon format) is currently available on, and on the Scrollon app.

In Praise of Franklin Booth

Written on February 13, 2012 at 8:16 pm, by Doug Lefler

Artists are thieves. We see something we like and we take without remorse. If we’re clever we mix techniques stolen from different sources to make our burglary less obvious. But some masters’ techniques are so specific they cannot be disguised. In the case of Franklin Booth it is best to admit your crime and plead for leniency.

Not only did I take from Booth while inking Seven Extraordinary Things, I delighted in doing so. Booth’s distinctive style was partially a result of trying to reproduce the appearance of wood engravings with pen and ink. I will refrain from posting examples of his work here for two reasons: 1) If I don’t own the rights to something, I don’t like to post it, and 2) my own art would suffer by the direct comparison.

Elsewhere on the internet…

WWW.DOUGLEFLER.COM has been completely reworked to function as a portfolio and blog.  My Scrollon® projects will soon be receiving a new home on their own site.

For those who are curious, here is the Home Page of my new site.

The NEW SITE has launched!

Written on December 6, 2010 at 1:07 pm, by Doug Lefler


With this project I wanted to create an online library of original content.  I considered adding more stories to, but it turns out “extraordinary” is a difficult word for many people to type.  Instead I chose for two reasons.  First, I already owned that domain name, and second… well, I was too lazy to come up with anything more original. But if people can remember my name, the site should be easy to find.

Everything that has been available for free on SEVENEXTRAORDINARYTHINGS.COM will be free on DOUGLEFLER.COM, plus more.  Although there is a subscription fee for the premium version of the site, I explain on the home page how you can easily get around paying it.  And I promise that any money I do make will be spent only on the creation of new content…

… and the occasional bowl of gelato.
