Behind the scenes.
Taking over the world, one page at a time.
It's been a few months now that I have been hinting at some big news. Some exciting project I have lined up.
I know! It has been super subtle and you might have missed it (like in the last newsletter when I said - and I' quoting my self: “I'm so exited for the coming year! 2022 is gonna be THE year!” or the previous one “Not being able to shout it from the rooftops from the very first moment is, honestly, a little frustrating at times!”)
What can I say! I'm a subtle kind of guy! But now the wait (mine, mainly) is OVER! Finally I can announce some very cool new projects!
John Carter of Mars (!!!!)
Practically everyone grew up with John Carter! (Might be exaggerating a bit, but not too much...) This story has this very cool retro futuristic vibe and a nostalgic feel I absolutely adore, but what excites me even more is the fact I' ll be doing all that alongside Chuck Brown (!!!!!) of the “Bitter Root” fame, one of my favorite books ever!
How cool is that!
A - still- unnamed project that will be coming out in 2022...
…for Vault comics with John Lees -cue the fireworks! I' m toying around with various “secret project” names for this one since I'm not at liberty to disclose its name (or any other information) yet... so what do you think about “Super Cool and Exciting Ultimate Dream project 3000” ? Too subtle? ...Probably!
All Drawn and no Brains.
Now to the sad news, well not really sad but still a little sad for me. The past few days I finished working on Buckhead! I' m gonna really miss this project and all the cool people I worked on it with! I really really hope this story continues in some shape or form cause it really needs to be told. It's so refreshing and imaginative and sweet. In the few following months you will get the chance to fall in love with it like I have... I'm almost jealous! Issue 3 will be in stores tomorrow(2/2)!
For all the romantic souls out there, Vampirella Valentine's Day special is coming out in time so you can get it for your significant other!
It'll be available on the 9th of February and it has some of my work in it. I actually wrote and illustrated a fun (if I may say so myself) short story in there and worked with the amazing Dearbhla Kelly and Emiliana Pinna on another one!
Shuffle! Oh, Boy! If ever there was a project I thought was promising and I was truly excited to be a part of!
Shuffle is David. David gets stuck in the middle of cosmic powers and living doodles and becomes a superhero, with the most unpredictable powers ever (hence the name). David gets different superpowers from each song his suit plays... too bad it's stuck on shuffle!
Still you get to experience an amazing exclusive playlist (fan fact: While working on any Shuffle art I am listening to the soundtrack and I feel both very lucky to have access to these extremely cool songs so early on and like I' m gonna get random superpowers)
Seriously don't miss out, it's as cool as it sounds!
Back from the Read.
Don't miss the Super best friend kickstarter that's out today! You can get it here!
I've talked about how rewarding working on Super best friend is for me many times here! I love its nostalgic yet original vibe. I love the characters, I love the settings I love, love, love it... And If you aren't yet bored of reading about my love for this comic here is an interview (thank God this one is in written form so I'm somewhat less awkward in it) where I'm being me and other people are being interesting.
Book to the Future.
