Finally, we're soliciting DAYTRIPPER. You can check out a preview of the first pages clicking here. Like it says, it will be "a Brazilian slice-of-life limited series, featuring beautiful women, friendships, family and complete unpredictability". That, and so much more, we hope. The solicit reads as follow:
Written by Gabriel Bá & Fábio Moon
Art by Fábio Moon & Gabriel Bá
Cover by Gabriel Bá
They were two of Entertainment Weekly’s Top 100 stars to watch. They’ve won multiple Eisners and have worked with the top names of comics and pop culture from Joss Whedon (Sugar Shock) and Mike Mignola (BPRD: 1947) to Gerard Way (Umbrella Academy) and Matt Fraction (Casanova).
Now, Brazilian wonder twins Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá are back writing and drawing in a hauntingly lyrical series set in their native Brazil. With DAYTRIPPER, they follow in the tradition of Craig Thompson, Paul Pope and David Mazzucchelli – cartoonists at the top of their game making comics about the quiet moments that ask big questions. Brás de Oliva Domingos is an obituary writer with a famous father, a career he hates, and tons of questions. How does a person become a successful writer? How does a man get out of his father’s shadow? But those concerns will dwarf the surprise he’ll find in the first issue – a twist both he and readers will never see coming, which will grow into a mystery about the meaning of life itself.

I was testing this new brush pen Bá bought. Good tip, but it's not waterproof. Because of that, I can play with it and pretend I'm doing cool ink washes, but it's not what I would trust my art on if I'm doing story pages. Definetely an improvement when it comes to sketching and designing stuff, because regular pens, or even pencil sketches, are very different from what I do with brushes.
Let's see what this new tool will do to my sketchbooks.
Back to the pages now.
