Hi, folks. Much time has passed since the last post and I think it will remain so for a while. I'm in some serious projects and I lack the time to update regularly. I hope you'll have a very happy summertime. We'll see asap.

After so much time and of so many entries, I really do not remember if I have posted this page before. Anyway, here it is. From the first chapter of The Hypothetical Lizard the stellar appearance of my elder brother as a haughty-seller-of-forbidden-things.
It was so funny to be able to draw well-known people in cameos.

A very old picture of an underwater Judge Dredd. I thought it would be interesting to see such a great city dweller in a rare medium. I have tried to adjust the gray levels 'cos the original was drawn on a transparent sheet and the were still a lot of traces of pencil. This illustration was designed to be printed on a black t-shirt, so I would use a negative image for this purpose...

Another page from Mool. Once more.
A splash page full of little details and even little lines.
When I now see so much work (fishing nets, the links of the chain, the mollusks in the post, the rope...) made me wonder "really worth it?".
Fortunately, most times I answer "yes".

More stuff from Mool. This page is titled "run and hide". The end of the saga was so near that everything became much faster and brutal... Even my way of drawing, as you can see in the absence of background in some panels.

I've always been a great admirer of black and white artists. Artists like Frank Robbins, Alex Toth or the spaniard Jordi Bernet.
Indeed, this old illustration is about Bernet. My brother was working in the latest spanish edition of Andrax, and I was asked to draw the main characters.
I thought it would be a good idea to imitate Bernet in the brush stroke ... I even did it with his signature, as a small tribute.

I've always thought that Moore's prose in The Hypothetical Lizard was very difficult to move to a basic visual level, which is why I tried through the drawings and page composition substantiate the atmospheric feeling into something much more tangible.
This page is an example of what I say.
