A page from new book

This is the first page from another story in the new book. I got a bit tired of drawing with a pen, so I'm trying out some other techniques, including brush, as you can see here.

  2. Looks fantastic! The sharp panel borders and brush lines work together so well. Tell Me Something is my favorite brush story of yours, but this style has the fluidity of brushwork with your traditional ligne claire.. um.. clarity.
    I myself always have troubles choosing between pen, brush and pencil and that bit in Left Bank Gang about it almost made me cry.

  4. That looks lovely. I'm such a fan of your work and your understated storytelling's such a strong influence on my own comics. The way you establish mood and a sense of space is really wonderful, I continue to be impressed. Thank you for sharing this!

  5. Seeing your work on the Fantagraphics blog is my first look. Nice! I will have to scrape together the bucks to buy some.

  6. Is the letting done by hand, or is that a computer font? Please say it's hand lettered, it's so nice.

  7. Looking forward to your next one as always.

    My favorites are WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?, I KILLED ADOLPH HITLER, also THE LAST MUSKETEER, but I enjoy all of your books.

    By the way, I am a humor comics cartoonist myself here in the States (CartoonFlophouse.com). Do you have a mailing address where I could send you a copy or two of my books? If so, please e-mail me through my blog or website.

    Also, are you a big fan of Kamagurka & Seele's COWBOY HENK? I really got into that strip when I read them in PSIKOPAT while living in Paris in the early '90s. 'Twas wondering how you felt about COWBOY HENK. I do not know if new strips are still being produced. Any impressions or insights?

  8. I've only seen a couple of Cowboy Henk strips, but I enjoyed the ones I saw.
