Suit day.

I’ve been doing this since SMOKE & GUNS. On the day I ink the very last page of a story, I put on my suit – now I go all three piece – and I draw all day looking my best.

“This is a day I want to remember”, I think.

“Dress the part.”

Today I finished another story. I actually inked two pages, and penciled most of one.

It feels good to be done. I’m proud of these pages. I’m proud of this story.

“This is a day I want to remember.”

A Bizarro collaboration

We were on the road, back in June, promoting our new book TWO BROTHERS here in Brazil, when we received an email from our friend Gustavo Duarte inviting us to collaborate with him on a page of an upcoming issue of his Bizarro series.

It is the first time either Bá or I have drawn on a super-hero book from DC or Marvel.

This issue comes out today.

SDCC 1999

The first time we went to San Diego Comic Con was in 1997 and it literally changed our lives.

Only two years after that, in 1999, we threw all our chips on self-publishing a mini-series, full color, and having a big booth at the convention, all the mistakes young excited creators can make.
We had two issues out of four ready at the show, our booth had this big backlit sign in front of the table, we had free posters, we raffled a real sword and we had this huge papier-mâché statue of Charlemagne.  I had brought the last two pages of the series to finish during the show, a double spread on issue 4.
We did everything we could to leave a big impression.

We've been to San Diego many times after that, but this is one of the fondest memories we have of the show.
