Amazing watercolors

I’ve plugged Gipi’s work countless times, but once again I find myself having to point out how inspiring his latest blog entries are. These three new watercolors of housing around Rome just blew me away. Wow.

If you’ve read the Venice Chronicles (specifically around these couple of pages) you’ve probably seen this animation I did for my wife’s birthday a couple of years back.

Here’s a little detail of an illustration/1pagecomic I am currently finishing watercoloring. The story centers around a Kappa. Can’t wait to show you the whole thing. I’m making this for a very special charity art auction that we are organizing for this summer. More details to follow.

I’ll let you know what I think once I finish reading it. update- Friend Vera Brosgol pointed some wonderful comics Modan made for the New York Times. Great stuff. I am half way through [...]
