God, damn! I'm finally done with Casanova: AVARITIA #3! If any of you hadn't seen the cover last year, here it goes again.


First of all, I'd like to apologize for all this delay. I used to hate those indy books done by superstar authors that would come out late because, well, they are superstars and really busy and all. Well, that should teach me to respect the big league and what it brings to the table.
Lot has happened last year, both Matt and I didn't expect it to be so crazy and we all hoped we would be able to work normally on Casanova through any sort of storm. We were wrong, but what ended up happening is what always ends up happening. THE BOOK IS AWESOME!!! I can honestly say it has the best pages I've ever done and some of the craziest scenes Matt's ever written. In the end, that's what really matters.

So, the solicitation number for it is 5960607229-00311 and it shall come out in March, finally! If you haven't already ordered it, WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING???

And I'm hands deep into issue #4 already! Good times!

Straight to inking

I guess Bá and I weren't the only ones impressed by the link to a 26 page story done in ONE day by this incredible french artist called Boulet. You can check out the story clicking here. It's a funny and nice story on its own, but to think it was done in 26 hours is insane. It's one page per hour.
Poking around the web, I found some videos of the guy drawing, and discovered that he doesn't pencil his pages, going straight to inking. Check it out.
Bá and I got all kinds of excited about this and, during some coffee breaks, we tried out hand at drawing straight with pens. Bá's version in the one with blue pen, mine is the other one, in black.

"Drawing straight with a pen is EASY" is what Bá is saying to me on his drawing.
I don't know if it's easy.
But it sure is fun.
