the cat, again

trying out the 'good pentel brushpen', the one craig thompson uses- quite nice for drawing the cat. but it's always fun drawing the cat

wonder winterland

more sketchbook nonsense comics, hence the illegibility. if anyone wants to translate, be my guest.

sala da pranzo

couldn't fall asleep and i had a 03 marker and a pad near the bed so i doodled a bit. then read some instructions on how to skin a deer, fell asleep and dreamt nice things.

little cover thumbnails- i guess i can post these but i'm not sure i can talk about them.

(repost, 27% larger, also larger than original at this point)

tech note

for those not visiting the blog from some kind of a reader program, you'll notice the slight layout change- the images will now be a bit larger (470px -> 600px) and a few other minor things. those with reader programs will just notice the larger pictures!

book cover... 11?

since i don't want to put up any of port silver, it'll be random tidbits until next week-- by then i'll start on the next marvel thing and maybe that'll provide some interesting stuff. today, cover sketches for another book. the lower two were approved.

what a break looks like:

this stack covers the last month and a half, maybe two. about... 170 cm high. need more shelves in this place!

100 (whee)

so it's been a hundred weeks! too tired at the moment to feel particularly festive; maybe in a few weeks, when it's two full years? below are all of them so far, not clickable, but soon available on the website (when it's done- couple of weeks, i'd say). highlights? the president asked if he could have his portrait- that's not bad, i'd say =)

p.s. 100 consecutive thursdays! well, i actually did miss one-- greetings go to the crabby employee of air france which made us miss the flight this june! thanks for ruining my track record!

so, yeah

-i've finished drawing marvel divas. it's been quite an experience, with the hottest summer ever, and the shortening deadlines, but it's there. the longest thing so far. a lot was learned about a lot of things, and who knows what's next.
well, port silver. and a few things. but after that, who knows!

monday it is

the last monday i spend drawing divas. that's a pretty expensive dress, by the way, and the shoes- first pair of blahniks in the whole book. unbelievable but true.

hidden homage

the first inked (and cropped) panel of issue 4. i love drawing shelves full of books, which doesn't mean i'm fast at it. this probably took an hour to ink. but it's one of the ways to sneak in hand lettering in the pages! the homage bit is too obscure- maybe two people will see it.

a couple of guys from the same piece of scrap paper lying around

September 17, 2009


the deadline was half an hour this time so i had to go with the first sketch... on a different note, stubble going gray is quite hard to draw and all these people seem to be covered with it.

orange book again

at some point i'd stopped liking sketchbooks, but now i seem to have four going at the moment. two or three of which are very specific, at least.

sometimes it's not pretty

drawn sometime during july, this rendition in the classic manner perfectly captures the joyfulness of days of 12-hour stretches and one million degrees of heat and humidity. thus, no line is an accident! (pronounce the sound with a deep gargle to get it right)

September 04, 2009


done, done and done! now sleep, food, basterds, terminator, and other fun things! and then more work over the weekend!

September 03, 2009


well, six inked, two to go-- portraitwork as a short break. it is thursday, after all!


busy day today-- now only some 16 hours of inking left!

this has finally been approved, and is going to print any day now (sareni ducan). i liked the red one more:
